While Reunion Weekend 2020 was postponed, the MI, CDS, and MICDS reunion classes ending in 0s and 5s proved that you do not need to gather on campus in order to continue supporting Reunion Class Gifts. From the 5th to the 80th reunion classes, our alumni participated in a yearlong fundraising campaign that was intended to culminate over Reunion Weekend. Instead, fundraising will continue as classes plan to celebrate alongside this year’s reunion classes in the Spring. Despite the circumstances, reunion alumni/ae have given back in significant ways by supporting the MICDS Fund, Ram Relief Fund, and Tuition Benefit, as well as funds especially meaningful to particular classes like the Ryan D. Seed ’95 Leadership Fund and the Barney Dill Class of 1985 Character Development Fund. For those who participated in their Reunion Class Gift, we are deeply grateful.
MICDS depends on the generosity, enthusiasm, and spirit of its Reunion alumni/ae to anchor the MICDS Fund, and this year the Ram Relief Fund. We look forward to working with this year’s cohort of reunion classes as they set their own aspirational yet achievable fundraising goals.
