No matter your class year, we all know there’s something for everyone to love at Tulane: from thought-provoking classes and research opportunities, to local bands on campus and community outreach in New Orleans.
There is always something going on, and more often than not, the Tulane Fund plays a part in what we all love about our university. The 2013 Class Challenge is your chance to get involved and make a difference.
Participating in the 2013 Class Challenge is like a personal stamp of approval on your college experience. You are contributing to something that makes a huge impact on our student experience each day. Every gift counts. Be a part of something big—make a gift today! Thank you for participating.
Not to mention, if your class has the highest percentage of donors, you get to celebrate with a party. Yes, we said party!
What is the Tulane Fund?
The Tulane Fund is fueled entirely by support from alumni, parents, friends, faculty, staff and students, who are passionate about the value of a Tulane education. Every year, the Tulane Fund enhances and sustains all aspects of the Tulane experience and supports everything we love about Tulane:
Engagement with the New Orleans community
Amazing faculty.... And much more!
But isn’t that why we pay tuition?
Your tuition doesn’t cover the full Tulane experience. Much of what you love about Tulane is made possible by the philanthropic Tulane community. Every student benefits from the Tulane Fund. Also, a huge part of the Tulane Fund goes directly to scholarships in order to attract the very best students and remain an accessible, world-class university.
I’m a student. I don’t have a lot of money to give.
Let’s face it, no one is expecting us to shell out tons of cash. The 2013 Class Challenge is all about participation. Remember, this is a competition and the class with the highest percentage of donors—not dollar amount—wins. For the price of a café latte or burrito, you can contribute to something big. Your $10 or even $5 gift can make a huge difference.
Wait, is $10 really going to make a difference?
We all know there is strength in numbers. If we rally together to participate in the challenge, that sends an encouraging message to other supporters. Alumni giving rates have a direct effect on the university’s overall ranking, which will increase the value of your degree. The power is in your hands. Participate today!
