One of the most meaningful ways to commemorate and celebrate your milestone reunion is through your class reunion gift. You can choose to give to any unit on campus in an area that is meaningful to you. ​​All gifts are welcome. This includes out-right gifts, planned gifts, endowments, real estate gifts, securities, gifts-in-kind, and scholarships. You name it; the gift counts in recognition of your class and your alumni contributions to the University of Arizona.

Class of 1973 Class Gift

Your class reunion marks a special milestone! As part of the celebration, your philanthropic gifts made throughout the calendar year will be included in the 1973 class giving total announced at Homecoming.

Silver & Sage Society Gift
