Reunion giving is a critical component of the Sewanee Fund, accounting for approximately 20—25 percent of the alumni giving total in any given year. Class volunteers are busy calling and emailing classmates throughout the Easter semester to encourage reunion attendance and support for class reunion gifts. During homecoming weekend, this year November 13—15, the volunteers see, often for the first time in years, those they have contacted to "come back to the Mountain." In addition, they can take pride in their reunion class gift totals when announced by the Vice-Chancellor at the Alumni Awards Ceremony on Saturday. Reunion campaigns take place during the fiscal year prior to a class’s homecoming, meaning classes whose graduation year ends in “1” and “6” are currently raising class gifts.
