Alumni Gifts: Solid Support

The University had received 78,000 gifts as of May 24, including those from reunioning classes, reported University Treasurer James F. Rothenberg ’68, M.B.A. ’70, during the HAA’s annual meeting. He emphasized volunteerism and service to the University, thanking 23,000 alumni for sharing their time and talents, especially those who interviewed a record number (30,000) of College applicants. Rothenberg de-emphasized the sometimes competitive atmosphere attending the announcement of individual class gifts, saying only that the class of 1975 had broken the record for thirty-fifth reunion giving by contributing more than $31 million and that the senior class had raised a record-breaking amount thanks to its 80 percent participation rate. He also noted that the Harvard College Fund had met its goal of $40 million in immediate-use gifts for the year, ensuring continued resources for financial aid, curricular support, and research. “We are at the target,” he said, “and hope to get a new bar for June 30.”
