Reunion Giving Chair Volunteer
What is Berea College Reunion Giving?
Reunion campaigns aim at inspiring alumni to give back while also creating an opportunity to reconnect with classmates you may have fallen out of touch with. Volunteering to serve as a reunion giving chair during your class’ reunion is a great way to continue the mission of Berea College. With assistance from Alumni, Communications and Philanthropy staff, we will lead a fundraising campaign that coincides with your class’ reunion year.
