We invite alumni back every five years to celebrate their time at Chicago Booth and also continue their class legacy of alumni investment. Reunion campaigns are led by the volunteer committee and class gift chair to support Booth’s leading source of unrestricted revenues, and help to ensure that the school maintains a healthy Annual Fund throughout the campaign.
Whether your class is five or 50 years out, or you were part of the Executive MBA, Full-Time MBA, Evening MBA, or Weekend MBA Programs, reunion campaigns are a time for classes to come together to celebrate and demonstrate their collective support for the school. This year was a pilot year for EMBA reunion fundraising and we found great success working with these alumni and encouraging them to come back and give back.
2018 Reunion classes collectively raised more than $8 million! A few highlights include:
- Classes of 2003, 1998, 1993, 1968, and EMBA all came in above goal and collectively brought in more than $3.5 million!
- Reunion Committee participation was record-breaking this year, with more than 84% of committee members giving to their class campaigns.
- The Meet Us at a Million Challenge provided a unique opportunity to match reunion gifts; giving the donors a chance to double their impact!
