Alumni Giving: How Can You Help?

You, our valued Alumni, are a great source of pride. Now scattered across local, national, and international communities, you continue to distinguish yourselves in myriad ways, “giving back” as respected citizens of the world and bringing honor and recognition to yourselves and to your alma mater. We ask you to honor Suffield with your loyal support by giving annually to the Annual Fund.
Please make a first to Suffield between July 1 and June 30. Class agent volunteers will write letters, send emails, and make calls to alumni encouraging support for the Annual Fund. Your annual donations generate additional resources for the school and feed directly into our annual operating income. Your participation in the Annual fund each year at any level demonstrates your ongoing pride in our school and your gratitude for the education you received, the experiences you enjoyed, and for the people who make a real difference in your lives. The size of alumni gifts vary from $5 to $100,000, but each gift counts the same for participation. We ask you to give an amount that is significant to you. The fact that you give is as important as the amount you give. When it comes to participation, you are the only one who counts. The percentage of alumni who give to Suffield is a measure of alumni satisfaction in the school and is important when the school applies for grant and loans. High participation signals a sound institution worthy of support.
