By now, we hope you have read Touch’s recent email thanking our class for stepping up in a big way during our 10-Year Class Reunion Campaign (CRC) last year. We all should be proud of our achievement and how it reflects our enduring commitment to The Citadel! If you did not receive that email, please email Russ at firstname.lastname@example.org so he can update our class records. We really intend on utilizing our class email to keep everyone connected throughout the year, so please forward Touch notable events, activities, and achievements that should be shared class-wide.
Going back to our accomplishment during the 10-Year CRC, we were able to begin a scholarship in honor and memory of our classmates that serve this wonderful country in a way fitting a Citadel graduate. Please note that we said “begin.” We need an additional approximately $450,000 to fully endow this scholarship. Please consider giving to our scholarship monthly or yearly so we continue to work towards it being fully endowed.
We know you all believe that The Citadel is a beacon of hope in this dynamic and sometimes depressing world. To continue its positive impact on society, it relies more and more on the financial support of the alumni. This support is essential as expenses increase and state support decreases. Our class can be part of the team of dedicated alumni that help it overcome these challenges as it maintains the core values and system that makes this institution so great! There are many needs and they extend throughout every facet of our school. These needs include facility maintenance and replacement, funding of programs, individual department needs, sports programs, infrastructure, and the list goes on and on. Please consider supporting one of the needs that you have a special interest in! The Citadel Foundation can help you identify a need that connects with your Citadel experience.
If you cannot find a fit for your generosity, you can always set up a monthly or yearly contribution to The Citadel Fund which allows the President the flexibility of applying those donations where the school needs it most. Please consider this option when continuing your financial support to our school.
Thanks again for your commitment to our class and school! We hope to hear from you soon!
