Dear Reunion ’08 celebrant:
On behalf of our colleagues at MIT Sloan, congratulations on a very successful Reunion weekend! Reunion 2008 was one of the largest in the history of the School, with more than 800 alumni, family members and friends participating in almost forty Reunion events throughout the weekend. Alumni came from 27 countries around the world, including Israel, Singapore and Japan as well 396 alumni for the United States. One alumnus lives only a few blocks from campus.
Alumni celebrating their MIT Sloan reunion contributed an impressive $1,210,318 million in new gifts to MIT Sloan. Special thanks and applause go to the two Reunion Committees that achieved an impressive 100% participation: 1958 and 1973. Congratulations are also due to the Class of 1958 for achieving the highest overall participation with Reunion giving (58%) and the Class of 1998 for conducting their first Class Challenge that shattered fundraising and participation records for a 10th Reunion.
The Reunion program helps strengthen alumni connections and networks throughout the MIT Sloan community. Reconnecting with fellow graduates, sharing experience and expertise with each other and the School through such learning opportunities as Back to the Classroom and professional workshops, and continuing to build alumni financial support of the School are but a few of the ways that Reunion and other alumni engagement is key to the future success of MIT Sloan. Your involvement is a powerful vote of confidence in MIT Sloan's mission of developing principled, innovative leaders who improve the world. Many thanks for all you do on behalf of MIT Sloan.
We look forward to seeing you again soon, especially at your next Reunion!
