The strength of the Associate Alumnae of Douglass College lies in its ability to meet the needs of Douglass, her students, and her alumnae. Educational journeys and lifelong connections begin at Douglass and would not be possible without the service of dedicated volunteers and gifts to the Douglass Annual Fund.
Your gift, no matter what the size, makes the experience of today’s Douglass women the best it has ever been. With your help, the Douglass Annual Fund supports:
• The AADC Extern Program
• Alumnae Networks
• Homecoming, Founders Day, and Reunion Weekends
• Student Scholarships, Fellowships, and Special Opportunity Funds
• Annual Lecture Series
• Global Village Living/Learning Communities
• The Douglass Project for Women in Math, Science, Technology & Engineering
• The Public Leadership Education Network
• And so much more!
Reunions are milestones—occasions for alumnae to commemorate their place in NJC and Douglass College’s history, reflect on what Alma mater has meant to them, and renew their ties with their classmates and the AADC. Reunion celebrations are also a time when classes focus their fundraising efforts to increase giving in support of today’s Douglass women.
The highest priority for reunion giving is the Douglass Annual Fund. Since the AADC is an independent, self-supporting organization, we depend on unrestricted Annual Fund gifts to meet our daily and annual obligations of operating the Associate Alumnae and providing support to Douglass College students and alumnae.
All gifts given to the AADC during your milestone reunion year as well as in the four years preceding your milestone year, count towards your Class Gift. Class gift totals are announced during Convocation during Reunion.
The AADC provides more than $500,000 each year in scholarship and program support to Douglass students. These Scholarships, Fellowships, Prizes and Funds enrich the educational experience for Douglass students. The Annual Scholarship Dinner brings scholarship donors together with their students for a special evening.
