Class of 1959

Join us in celebrating our 55th reunion this spring. Save the date: May 30 - June 1, 2014

Reunions are a great time for looking back and giving forward. Making a gift to Gustavus in celebration of our reunion has a direct impact on students today, tomorrow and in the future.

  • Gifts for Todayregular gifts to the Annual Fund, multi-year pledges and matching gifts
  • Gifts for Tomorrow – special gifts to capital projects, a class scholarship and other endowment funds
  • Gifts for the Future – assets given to Gustavus at a future date, usually associated with estate plans

Every gift counts! Your participation is what matters most.

The 1959 Class Endowed Scholarship is within $3,000 of reaching the $25,000 mark, when it will begin providing scholarship funds for worthy Gustavus students--now and indefinitely! This is a great opportunity for us, as loyal alumni, to leave a legacy to the place we called home so many years ago. Give generously during this time of reflection and celebration.

Support the 1959 Class Endowed Scholarship

All gifts from received from January 1, 2013 through May 31, 2014 count towards our reunion gift. Additionally, any documented future gifts recorded by the College since the previous reunion are counted in the class gift total.
