Kicking off the Fund Year (Class of 2006)

Dear [sal]:

Last year our giving totaled $xxxx at a whopping xx% participation rate. On behalf of the college, we thank you for this generous support. The Alumni Fund overall represents more than 7% of the college’s operating budget. Our dollars go to critical initiatives including enriched student life, faculty support, and financial aid. This year we have set the bar just as high, targeting $xxxx and xx% participation. For some, it may be that a gift of $10, or perhaps a gift of $10 a month is right for you. For others, we hope you’ll consider making a leadership gift of $xx or more. Every gift of every amount goes towards sustaining Williams’ unparalleled excellence.

If you are a regular Alumni Fund donor, we sincerely thank you for your support and ask you to please consider renewing your commitment at an increased level. If you are an occasional Alumni Fund donor, we ask you to commit to giving every year during the course of the campaign. An annual commitment from you, of any amount, matters greatly and will be sincerely appreciated. If you’ve never given to the Alumni Fund, there’s never been a better time than now for your first gift!

Thanks for your continued support, and we look forward to a strong year.
