## What is Reunion Giving?

Reunion Giving is a yearlong fundraising campaign that takes place leading up to your reunion celebration. If you’re celebrating a reunion in 2014 and you want to participate in Reunion Giving, all you have to do is make a gift—of any amount and to any area—between June 1, 2013, and May 31, 2014. Your gift will be counted in the class giving total, which is measured in two ways: total dollars contributed and class participation rate.

#### How do you total up how much each class has given for their reunion?

The dollar total for a class is the amount of money classmates have donated since June 1, 2013, including any pledges made.

#### How do you figure out a class' giving participation rate?

A class' giving participation rate is calculated by how many classmates make a gift in the fiscal year of their reunion. A gift is an outright gift, a bequest, a multi-year pledge, or credit from a spouse making a gift.

#### When do you tally the numbers for the Reunion Class Gift?

For a gift to count toward the reunion class gift totals it must be made by May 31, 2014, at 11:59 p.m

#### How can I participate?

Reunion giving recognizes contributions made to all designations including the Villanova Annual Fund, scholarships and financial aid, your school or college, athletics, endowment or any other area of campus.

You can make a gift using a credit card, check, stocks and bonds, and even planned gifts can count in your class giving totals. Five year pledges offer steady support for the University and the entire pledge amount counts towards your class goals. Click here to make a gift in honor of your reunion today!
