FISK TO 50 CHALLENGE

Goal: To increase the alumni participation rate to 50% by June 30, 2019

Ways you can support:

Incentive:

  • All your gifts will be applied to your class gift
  • Improves our chance for funding with corporations

The participation rate is important because corporations look at this number when considering sponsorships to our institution. Fiskites, show your commitment as “sons and daughters ever on the altar” by helping us reach this goal.

Thanks to our alumni who have contributed this year to our Fisk to Fifty campaign!  Below are the standings through March 29th.  Please call your class agent and classmates and work on your strategy for moving your class into first place.  The class leading in % of participation on May 1st (note:  reunion classes 4’s & 9’s participation cutoff date is May 4th) will be recognized at this year’s reunion gala!  Great things are happening at our alma mater…..please be a part of this WONDERFUL time to be a FISKITE!

Special thanks to all alumni who stepped up to the plate last year and delivered our highest ever % of alumni giving at 34%!  This tremendous increase in alumni support has already resulted in some remarkable gifts from major donors.
