  • At 6 p.m., we'll attend the all-alumni Kick-off Party in the Alvarez College Union. Don't miss the live music and delicious food! Our class will have the Arthur Vining Davis Room reserved as space to meet and greet with one another. If you enter the College Union from the patio overlooking the Stephen B. Smith football field, the room will be to your right.

Saturday, June 7

  • At 9 a.m. our class will gather in the Sprinkle Room (top floor of the Alvarez College Union) for a brief memorial service led by Sam Tallman. Then we will hear from current students about what is going on at Davidson. Bring any questions you may have for them!

Shaw Smith 900 Room in the Alvarez College Union at 6 p.m. President Carol Quillen will stop by our reception and give brief remarks.

Class Gift

For our 45th Reunion Class Gift, we celebrate the many ways '69 supports the college. This includes:

  • All dollars. Whether you give to The Fund for Davidson or a specific scholarship, professorship, or capital project, all money given to Davidson during the current fiscal year (July 1, 2013 through June 30, 2014) will be included.
  • All multi-year commitments made this year. Planning ahead allows you to be strategic in your philanthropy and helps the college better predict future revenue. You'll also hear from the college less-you can even choose when to be reminded about making your annual gift!
  • Any good faith estimate of a planned gift. The 45th Reunion is a great time to consider your legacy at Davidson. See planned giving options appropriate to your age group.

However you choose to participate, our Class Gift offers a unique opportunity to support the area of Davidson most meaningful to you and say "thank you" to alma mater by making a special gift in honor of your time on campus. Your gift also preserves the Davidson experience for current and future students.

Realizing that the majority of donors choose to support the college through The Fund for Davidson, our class is making a special effort for increased goals of $165,000 and 70 percent participation to The Fund this year. Don't forget to support The Fund for Davidson today!

If you have questions about your reunion gift, please email the Annual Giving Office or call 704-894-2680.
