Fiscal Year End | June 2012

what is

alumni participation?

  Alumni participation is a term representing the percentage of alumni that make a contribution during our fiscal year (July 1 – June 30) to their alma mater. Alumni participation is recalculated every year, and every gift­—no matter the size—counts.   Alumni giving percentages are important because many corporations and foundations use the percentage to gauge alumni satis-

faction. Higher percentages show funding agencies that the alumni are in support of the college and base their philanthropic decisions on them. It is also used in the U.S. News and World Report rankings.   Your gift today of any amount will put us one step closer to reaching our goal of 20% alumni participation.

  All donors will be listed in the upcoming 2011-12 Honor Roll of Donors publication and will be eligible to vote in the upcoming Alumni Association officer election.   Gifts may be designated to any program or to the Student Impact Fund.

what is the

student impact fund?

  The annual Student Impact Fund provides much needed financial aid to bridge the gap between the real cost of education and what Union College students actually pay.   Tuition only covers about 70% of the actual cost of educating a Union student. The resources that the Student Impact Fund provides each year is one of the few sources of income bridging the gap between what tuition provides and the total operating budget. Generous support strengthens the Union 1:1 experience for all students.
