Reunion Giving

Reunions are milestones for our alumni and provide an opportunity to reflect on student experiences, reconnect with fellow Techers and the Institute, and celebrate your accomplishments since graduation.

The collective reunion year gifts made by alumni impact the academic journey of our current Techers, while also supporting all areas of campus—allowing Caltech to remain a leader in science, research, and discovery.

No matter what part of campus you give to or how much you donate, as undergraduate reunion alumni (Classes of 1950, 1955, 1960, 1965, 1970, 1975 1980, 1985, 1990, 1995, 2000, 2005, 2010, 2015), your gift is considered a reunion year gift if it is made between October 1, 2019 and September 30, 2020.

Come Back, Give Back

Save the date for alumni Reunion Weekend from May 14-17, 2020. Come back to celebrate this special milestone! Give back by making a special reunion year gift celebrating your Caltech experience.

Join the Caltech Fund

We look forward to celebrating with you! Join us the Friday of Reunion Weekend on the Athenaeum lawn for the Caltech Fund Cocktail Party as we recognize, celebrate, and show our appreciation for you and your outstanding support. You'll also get to meet the amazing members of the graduating class who will be joining for all your future reunions.

Special Giving Opportunities

We encourage you to use the timing of your reunion to consider a special gift capable of a lasting impact, in celebration of this milestone year. Special reunion year giving opportunities are also organized by class volunteer committees who are interested in honoring the experiences of their class by the creation of an initiative.

All areas of campus are open as potential beneficiaries. Past initiatives have included collective gifts dedicated to areas such as undergraduate scholarships; graduate fellowships, student life, or climate science, just to name a few.

To learn more about any of these initiatives, please contact Peter Gilman at 626.395.3843.
