On Friday, February 24, at the traditional Annual Giving dinner prior to Alumni Day, more than 145 Annual Giving volunteers gathered at the mid-point of the 2016-17 campaign. During the evening, Annual Giving Chair Louise S. Sams ’79 presented several distinguished achievement awards to the leaders of last year's Annual Giving campaign.
Stanley Mathabane ’17 was an accomplished jazz musician in high school. When he came to Princeton, he joined Triangle Club and decided to concentrate in psychology and earn a certificate in theater. Then Tony Award-winning professor Rob Kaplowitz turned him on to sound design, and now Stanley has combined his background in music with his love of theater to create a new score for his future.
In the spirit of the season, we invite you to view a special Princeton greeting. We hope it will evoke the spirit of passion, creativity, and lifelong learning that spans generations and strengthens our connections to Princeton and each other.
It was the final day of the 1965–66 Annual Giving campaign and Winthrop Short ’41 was on the phone with Princeton to see where his class stood. As the leader of the Class of 1941’s effort heading into its 25th Reunion, Short was trying to rally his classmates to a new all-time high for any Princeton class—$200,000.
Alan Lukens ’46’s college years were interrupted by World War II. Part of the US Army’s 20th Armored Division, he was 21 years old in April 1945 when his unit and other American soldiers broke through barbed wire surrounding Germany’s Dachau concentration camp to find emaciated prisoners shouting in relief.
A mighty thanks to the 43,910 alumni, parents and friends who gave #OneMoreRoar in support of the 2015-16 Annual Giving campaign. See how the Princeton family came together and roared for Old Nassau.
Princeton University’s 2015-16 Annual Giving campaign raised $59,334,144 -- the second highest total in Annual Giving history -- with 58.4 percent of undergraduate alumni participating. The results are notable for their strength and breadth across all of Princeton’s constituencies: undergraduate alumni, graduate alumni, parents and friends.
From the Class of 1937 through the Class of 2016, nearly 25,000 members of the Princeton family came together for the annual celebration of our connections with each other and with Princeton.
