Reunion & Class Gifts

Each year, thousands of Queen's graduates return to campus to reunite and celebrate with classmates. Whether it is their 5th or their 50th reunion, many classes take this opportunity to pay tribute to Queen's by giving back with a reunion class gift.

Check the Classes, Clubs & Groups Directory to see what your class fund is.

Annual class gifts support much-needed student bursaries and scholarships, library acquisitions, leading-edge technology, and other academic programs and projects that enable Queen's to deliver a first-rate academic experience and an exceptional learning environment to a diverse group of future leaders.

The key to a successful class giving campaign is the support of a Class Giving Committee. The more people you have engaged in the fundraising process, the easier it will be to get the rest of your class involved as donors.
