Annual gifts of cash and securities are the College’s highest priority. For those able to do more, please consider additional outright support and a multi-year pledge to sustain annual giving beyond your reunion year.
Types of Gifts
The College will also feature the grand total of philanthropic support, which includes gifts to all funds, pledged support, and planned gifts. Note that details may vary slightly for 25th, 50th, and post-50th Reunion Gift counting and will be explained by staff liaisons.
Gifts and Pledges
Gift agreements establish endowed funds that generate revenue in perpetuity for a scholarship, professorship, spaces, or another specific purpose. The typical minimum commitment of $100,000 can be spread over several years.
Planned gifts include will provisions and retirement fund beneficiary designations. Life income gifts that pay you or a loved one before the remainder transfers to Haverford are also included in the class gift.
The 1833 Society recognizes donors who make leadership gifts of $1,833 or more. Special recognition benefits are made available for gifts of $5,000 (College Circle) and $10,000+ (President’s Circle).
Young alumni celebrating their 5th or 10th reunion are recognized as leadership donors at adjusted levels ($100 per year post-graduation).
