A message from your Reunion Campaign Committee...
Many of you were able to make it back to Charleston for Homecoming 2010, where you watched seven classes celebrate the successes of having collectively raised $9.9 million! The Class of 1990, who just celebrated their 20th Reunion, raised a total of $541,254. Our class is just one year away from celebrating our 20th reunion at Homecoming 2011—let’s blow the Class of 1990 out of the water with both dollars raised and the number of classmates that give back!
To date, we have raised approximately $260,398 of our $500,000 goal during our reunion campaign period of 2009-2011. Approximately $64,433 has been raised toward our selected reunion project. As a reminder, the projects our class has chosen to support are:
- Class of 1991 Scholarship – This priority project will receive funding first in order to bring immediate life to the project and ensure fulfillment. Goal of $150,000 (within overall goal).
- The Citadel Fund – The Citadel has an ongoing (and growing) need for unrestricted support. Contributions to The Citadel Fund ensure immediate annual dollars available for use by The Citadel. It is essential that every Class Reunion Campaign provide support to The Citadel Fund.
Giving back to our alma mater is more important now than ever before. State support continues to drop and The Citadel is projected to receive less than 10% of its 2010-2011 operations budget from the state (down from 18.5% of the 2008-2009 budget).

We hope you will take part in this exciting opportunity to leave a class legacy at The Citadel. Many thanks for your consideration and financial support of our Class Reunion Campaign.
