Largiantur Donatores

The University had received $493 million in donations through May 31 of the fiscal year, according to University Treasurer James F. Rothenberg ’68, M.B.A. ’70, who gave an accounting of class gifts at the HAA’s annual meeting on the afternoon of Commencement day. Significantly, he noted, more graduates are now giving to other Harvard priorities, not just to their own schools, and an increasing number of non-alumni are also making gifts to the University. The Business School, he reported, had completed its first capital campaign (led by new Harvard Medalist C. Dixon Spangler Jr.) by surpassing its $500-million goal well ahead of schedule; the Law School has reached $243 million toward its $400 million goal with three years to go. And in the annual friendly competition among College reunioners, in which the class of 1970 gave $7.3 million, the class of 1955 gave $15.5 million, and the class of 1980 gave $20 million, Rothenberg singled out the class of 1950, whose $32.5 million more than doubled the previous fifty-fifth-reunion gift record, and the class of 1975, for smashing the thirtieth-reunion record with $35.5 million.
