Your 50th Reunion
1971 50th Reunion Giving Overview
The Class of 1971 looks forward to continuing a longstanding 50th-reunion tradition of generously giving back to Washington and Lee. While reunions are often associated with looking back, the 50th milestone enables the class to look forward. Inspired by W&L's motto Non Incautus Futuri, each class leaves a legacy that will benefit the university for years to come. The Class of 1971 is supporting two projects: The Class of 1971 Washington and Lee Scholarship Endowment, and The Class of 1971 R.E. Lee Summer Research Endowment. Their overall reunion goal is $5.5 million to honor their milestone year. Nothing embodies the spirit of W&L nor demonstrates alumni loyalty more than the 50th reunion giving campaign.
