Class of 1979

The planning for our 35-Year Class Reunion in 2014 has begun! If you would like to participate in the planning, please contact Alumni & Parent Engagement!

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, the 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.

We are within $2,500 of reaching the $25,000 goal we need for our class endowed scholarship to begin supporting a Gustie student. Give today to put us over the top! This fund will offer financial assistance to generations of Gusties indefinitely.

Support the 1979 Class Endowed Scholarship

All gifts from received from June 1, 2013 through Homecoming 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.
