Trustee Case Study
Senior Year
A classmate asked me to donate to the Senior Gift but I never got around to it.
I am a volunteer for the Senior Class Gift Committee. I was the first person to make my gift!
"The impactful nature of it, that is really important, to make sure that the money is actually going to have an added benefit to a user, a community, a school, and to be able to see that happen."
"Millennialls first support causes they are passionate about (rather than institutions), so it’s up to organizations to inspire them and show them that their support can make a tangible difference on the wider issue."
I started following NMH on Instagram and I love seeing the pictures of campus. They even 'liked' a #tbt photo of me and my friends from freshman year. I love the school but when they ask me to give, I tune them out. The school has millions, my money would just be a tiny drop in a big bucket.
I attended an event in NYC and learned about our young alumni giving society. It has allowed me to connect with the school's decision makers so I feel like I now have a seat at the table.
Giving update: $250 to join leadership giving society (first gift since graduation)
"This is a generation that likes to see things, likes to see and feel, likes to use all of their senses to really know what's going on."
When updating my address on the school website, I signed up to volunteer to host gatherings for fellow alumni on campus.
Giving Update: $5/month throughout college.
At my 5-yr reunion the chair of the young alumni committee asked me to join the Alumni Council. I'm honored and excited, especially since I can't give more financially right now.
Giving Update: Renewed $5/month gifts

I was asked to be chair of the Annual Fund Committee of the Alumni Council! I am excited to be an ambassador for the school and get young alumni to be more connected to giving back.

I think I charged my parent's card before we graduated. Mostly, I was stoked to get the free t-shirt!

I agreed to join the 10-year reunion volunteer team as a gift chair volunteer. My first step was to make a leadership gift and I have been assigned a portfolio of classmates who I will ask to join me at my leadership giving level.
Giving Update: $2,000 reunion gift
"Scholars project that at least
$41 trillion

I am starting a tech company in San Francisco. During a recent event, an alumnus invited me to join our School's Tech Committee, which only meets twice a year. It is a great way to network and a low-impact way to offer my professional experience and get involved with my alma mater.
Giving Update: $50-$250/year
As part of our 10-yr reunion, I gave a $1,000 gift, which made me a part of our young leadership giving club. I received a really nice note from a current student thanking me for supporting his education. It was the first time I really connected the impact of my gift with what happens day to day on campus. My gift didn't feel transactional - it was personal. I am all in.
Giving Update: Sustaining leadership gifts of $1,000+
Giving Update: Increased to $42/month and joined leadership giving society
I would say I have Cate in my periphery vision. I "like" an occasional photo on FB or Instagram and I try to remember to make a gift every year. Studying abroad, summer programs, etc. have been my priority.

"Young people are often relegated to a committee that plans a party for young people. Awesome. I have more to offer than that."
"Give us a clear call to action, let’s problem-solve together. Tell us what you are working on, and let’s work on this together. Tell me what you need me to do."

Sustained Success
Welcome to the Alumni Association!
"The real role of leadership in education is not and should not be command and control. The real role of leadership is climate control, creating a climate of possibility. And if you do that, people will rise to it and achieve things that you completely did not anticipate and couldn't have expected."
