Reunion Class Giving

To our treasured Hollins Alumnae/i,

Reunion is that delightful time when Hollins alumnae/i honor the anniversary of earning our degrees, our classmates, and our alma mater by making a special reunion gift. Reunion giving focuses on increased alumnae/i participation and increased gift amounts. Alumnae/i volunteers fundraise among their classmates to raise the largest gift and encourage the highest class participation. Alumnae/i participation in giving is a factor in grant applications and college rankings, as well as class and school spirit.

We are all disappointed that in 2021 the COVID 19 pandemic has once again affected our Reunion plans, but we promise to make it up to you when we can all gather together on campus, hopefully soon.

As in other years, classes engaged in a friendly competition for the Reunion Class Giving Awards for largest total gift, largest gift to the Hollins Fund, and highest participation in giving. Classes are also recognized at Reunion for breaking all-time records for each reunion year for the largest gift and highest participation.

You have helped to that as we move forward to a bright future ahead, we will still hold on to the treasured memories and traditions that make Hollins a place worth celebrating.
