St. Paul’s School recognizes and celebrates quinquennial Reunions. They are a time to celebrate and to reunite with formmates. Form Directors and Form Agents, in coordination with the School’s Alumni and Development staff, work together to plan, organize, and fundraise for the 5th through 75th reunions.
The School depends on the generosity, enthusiasm, and spirit of its reunion forms to anchor the SPS Annual Fund. Successful reunion forms set the pace for the SPS Annual Fund, and help to inspire other forms through their form gift.
The School recognizes two gift totals in any form’s reunion year, the Reunion Annual Fund Gift and the Reunion Total Gift. At Anniversary Weekend we celebrate and acknowledge each form’s Reunion Annual Fund Gift in hopes that many will set new records for dollars and/or participation.
The Reunion Annual Fund Gift includes the form’s cash gifts to the SPS Annual Fund in the year of the Reunion. To count for participation, a gift must be made to the Annual Fund.
The Reunion Total Gift includes all gifts and pledges during the reunion year and in the four years prior to the Anniversary (planned gifts will be credited based on our established crediting policies). A gift may only be counted in one Reunion Total Gift. Participation matters most. Everyone is encouraged to participate in her or his reunion form gift. Levels of support will vary from form to form, and from person to person, but your form agents will likely ask for a “stretch” gift from everyone in the form.
Please remember, every gift – no matter the size – is meaningful to SPS. If you are not able to make a gift at one of the gift club levels, or if you have not been a regular supporter of The SPS Annual Fund, we hope you will consider participating in a reunion year. Reunion form gift records are recognized on both dollars and participation rates, so every gift is significant!
