Engaging Minds, Transforming Lives

Giving

Class Giving

Southwestern alumni honor the tradition of engaging minds and transforming lives by consistently supporting The Southwestern Fund through charitable giving and ensuring that deserving students continue to benefit from a quality liberal arts education. 

Reunion Giving

Reunion classes help continue the Southwestern legacy of philanthropy by making a class gift before their reunion celebrations at Homecoming, which take place every five years after graduation. Find out the latest about reunion class giving.

Student Philanthropy

Through its core values, Southwestern helps students recognize the importance of giving back.

  • Pirate Outreach Program reaches out to alumni parents and friends to help to raise funds for the University through student phone calls. 
  • Student Philanthropy Council is a student organization that works to raise awareness among Southwestern students about the importance of giving back and raises money for a senior class gift. 

Class Agents

Class agents are comprised of alumni volunteers from the 1940s to the present who collectively help raise more than $100,000 each year from their classmates through personal correspondence and connections. Learn more about the class agents and their invaluable service to Southwestern philanthropy.
