Reunion giving is the cornerstone of The Wellesley Fund and a time-honored College tradition. Each year, between 15 and 20 percent of Wellesley Fund dollars are raised from reunion classes. A generous gift in honor of your reunion will help make the Wellesley experience as unique and meaningful for today’s students as it was for you.

We invite you to become actively involved in supporting Wellesley by not only giving a reunion gift, but by volunteering with your classmates to encourage others to give as well. Your gift and your involvement will provide support to Wellesley on a day to day basis, enabling the College to be flexible in meeting the educational and extracurricular needs of our students.

Your reunion is a time to become reacquainted with the College, renew friendships, and celebrate the Wellesley community. Join us by becoming a member of your reunion committee—and help make a difference in the lives of current students! To get involved, or for more information, please contact us at
