Reunion Giving Reaches Record Numbers

Alumnae Annual Fund giving is vitally important to the College, and reunion gifts are the cornerstone of alumnae giving.

From Wednesday, May 13 through Sunday, May 17, Spelman College alumnae celebrated Reunion 2015. Through each class’ participation and the dedication of volunteers, Reunion 2015 was a great success.

A special thank you goes to all of the donors from each class who made a thoughtful and meaningful gift to Spelman this fiscal year. The competition between classes was fierce and each class worked to take home an award and recognition for their ongoing support to Spelman.
