Reunion Giving

Reunion 2020, June 4-7

2020 is a reunion for all undergraduate class years ending in five and zero; the reunion year begins on June 1, 2019 and runs through May 31, 2020 with reunion weekend taking place from June 4-7. All gifts to Sarah Lawrence since June 2015 count toward the "comprehensive giving" for reunion 2020. In addition to counting as a reunion gift, bequest provisions, life-income gifts, and naming the College as a beneficiary will earn donors members in the William and Sarah Lawrence Society. Alumni often consider giving two or three times the amount that they give during non-reunion years.

Make a Reunion Gift

A significant part of the legacy of each class is the loyal support and inspiration it gives to future generations of Sarah Lawrence students through its Reunion Class Gift.

You can support the College through a single or recurring gift, multi-year pledge, and a planned giving arrangement.

Help increase class participation rates and gift totals; make your donation before May 31, 2020.
