April 20111990s alumni continue to make strides toward the decade giving participation goal of 30%, which represents a 4% growth in participation over last year. The decade currently stands at 13.3% alumni giving participation, which is 1.6% ahead of this time last year. With just 3 months left in the fiscal year, time is of the essence. To reach the 30% participation goal, 362 more alumni from the 1990s will need to make a gift of any size, to any area of the College, between now and June 30, 2011. If you have not yet made your gift this year please consider doing so today by visiting www.rmc.edu/givenow. In other 90s Initiative news, the steering committee which leads this effort meets this month to map out a plan for the next 12 to 15 months. If you have ideas for how to engage alumni from your class or peer group, or have questions about the 90s Initiative, please don’t hesitate to contact committee chair Graham Rashkind ’96 at email@example.com. February 2011 On February 19, 2011 more than 400 alumni and friends gathered at the Jefferson Hotel in Richmond for a 1990s Decade Celebration. Decade-long friendships were renewed and continued, new, happy memories were made and many said it was a night they will remember for a long time. Please be on the lookout for more special events and programs!
January 2011One year later, the 90s Initiative is making headway! Halfway through the fiscal year, giving participation among 90s classes stands at 11.09%, 1 percentage point ahead of this time last year. 90s alumni events are also seeing outstanding attendance, and reunion committees for the Classes of 1991 and 1996 are off to a fantastic start.
December 2010In December 2010 alumni from 1990 to 1999 were invited to complete an online survey to gauge their interests and level of engagement regarding Randolph-Macon College, and to help guide the work of the 90s Initiative moving forward. 197 alumni, or about 9% of all 90s alumni, completed the survey, which showed many encouraging results as well as specific areas to be targeted for improvement. If you would like a complete copy of the survey results, please contact Maya Erhardt by phone at 804-752-1144 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
