Alumni

Campaign Warm-Up

July-August 2013

The twenty-fifth reunion class of 1988 raised an eye-popping, all-time-record Harvard-reunion gift: $115 million, according to University treasurer James F. Rothenberg, who publicly thanked the class during the HAA’s annual meeting on the afternoon of Commencement day. He also thanked all the other alumni who’d contributed to the University this year by, for example, interviewing 35,000 applicants, leading more than 230 Harvard clubs and Shared Interest Groups, and drawing 6,700 to reunions. He acknowledged in particular the help of the youngest members of the alumni community, noting that 80 percent of the class of 2013 had contributed to the class gift and, for the first time, participation exceeded 70 percent in every House.
