Alumni celebrating their 50th class reunions present Gallaudet with a class gift. We aim to raise a minimum of $25,000 to establish an endowed Class of 1970 fund as a permanent legacy to our class. Raising $70,000 as the ultimate goal for our gift—we are the Class of ’70, after all!

We look forward to presenting our gift to Gallaudet during our reunion in October 2020. Our endowed fund will support an area of our choosing. The Reunion Committee will present three options for us to vote on during our reunion. If you have ideas for us to consider, please let us know; any and all ideas are welcome.

Thanks to those who have contributed, large and small. Please continue to contribute as much and as often as you can. And for those who have not yet contributed, we hope you too will jump on the bandwagon and send in a donation. You will find a list of contributors, videos, and the status of our fund here; it will be updated monthly.

We hope to get as many class members to contribute as possible, say, could we hope for as high as 90%? That would be quite a powerful way to say: Thank you, Gallaudet!

You can contribute at this secure link:

If you prefer, you can send a personal check or send payments via online banking at the address below. Make sure you note that the donation is for the CLASS OF 1970 GIFT FUND if you choose this option; if you do not, your donation will go to Gallaudet’s general fund.
