Hello Williams ’88 Class Agent Team —
With September now here, it’s that time once again to gear up for our Williams Alumni Fund efforts.
But first and foremost — you all deserve a pat on the back and round of applause for a job very well done last year, in a fundraising environment that challenged many other colleges and universities. We raised more than $263k from approximately 60% of our class, thanks to your great efforts!
Before we officially kick off this year’s fundraising efforts, we want to confirm your participation on the agent team once again. We hope you can, but at the same time, if circumstances don’t allow you the time and energy right now, we completely understand and offer this opportunity for you to gracefully bow out. Many of you have been agents for many years, and we are deeply appreciative of your many contributions to Williams and our great Class of ’88!
As the fundraising year officially kicks off in October, you will be receiving your agent packets in the coming weeks. These are full of resources and tools to help you do your job. Our Alumni Office liaison, Wendy Skavlem, is a terrific and experienced resource as well – Wendy is cced here. Whether you are a new-ish or a veteran agent, you will find that Wendy and her team – as well as Cary, Tracy and Lewis as your co-Head Agents – are more than willing to help make your jobs easier.
We look forward to hearing from you regarding your continued involvement with our agent team and the Alumni Fund. (If we don’t hear from you by Sept. 22, we will assume you are still on board.) We’ll then follow up with all agents to confirm agent assignments and do any necessary re-shuffling.
And last but certainly not least – mark your calendars for June 8-10, 2018 — our 30th Reunion, ready or not here it comes!
We are looking forward to a great year — and as always, thanks for all you do for Williams and for our great class.
All our best,
The Head Agents
