50th Reunion

Each 50th Reunion class honors W&L by identifying and raising support for a project that addresses the University's current priorities. Reunion class giving has three components:

  • A class project (one or more priority areas chosen by the reunion committee)
  • The Annual Fund
  • Gifts and pledges to areas of personal interest

For questions about the 50th reunion gift, please contact Patti Cook, Assistant Director of Reunion Giving.
