The CCPA is focused on fostering career exploration, professional growth for students and alumni, networking, and outreach with employers. Check out the new website, the Alumni Resources portal, and Haverford's official LinkedIn group designed to help students and alumni network and discuss career-related topics. More information about career resources for alumni will appear in future issues of this e-newsletter.

Fall for the 'Ford During Young Alumni Giving Month

This October marks the fourth annual Young Alumni Giving Month, celebrating the importance of support for Haverford from graduates of the last decade (Classes of 2004-2013). Every young alumni gift to the Annual Fund made by October 31, 2013 will be matched dollar for dollar by a family from the Class of 2011. Make your gift and double your impact by falling for the 'Ford today.

Speak with current students by phone

Current student callers will be picking up the phone beginning on September 23rd to share news about the College, update contact information, and encourage alumni and parent support for the Annual Fund. We hope you will take a few minutes to speak with our students and reconnect with Haverford. If you prefer not to give by phone, please make your gift online today!
