Ways to Give

Give a Gift! (remember it's tax deductible and your company might match your gift)


And don't forget to Pay Class Dues! (and get the Cornell Alumni Magazine)

What is the difference between dues and gifts?

Class dues are paid by individuals to become formal members of the class, the magazine is typically included in the membership fee. Membership fees go into the class treasury and support class communications and activities. A gift is very different, in that it is dedicated either to serving the university through restricted or unrestricted support (restricted meaning that there are specifics about how the monies can be spent, unrestricted meaning that the university has autonomy in use of the gift).

Becoming a dues paying member not only strengthens our class treasury, it also strengthens your relationship to our classmates and the University by providing funding for class mailings, regional events, communications, class networking efforts, this website, finding "lost" classmates, reunions, among other things. Dues payers receive a subscription to Cornell Alumni Magazine, bringing Cornell to your doorstep 6 times a year, keeping you up-to-date through the class column and articles on the latest campus happenings and alumni endeavors.

Or volunteer your time and get involved! Time = Money
