UVA Class Reunions Update
Safeguarding the health and safety of everyone in our communities and doing our part to slow the spread of COVID-19 is our highest priority. Given this, we will not be moving forward in the traditional, in-person format for Reunions 2021.
Instead, we will focus on moving some of your favorite elements of the weekend online in early June, as well as creating new digital opportunities for class celebration. You will receive additional emails about these offerings in the coming weeks and months, and this page will be updated as information becomes available.
Come Back, Give Back
Your reunion year provides an excellent opportunity to support the University in a way that is personally meaningful to you. Your gift can be designated to your school, presidential priorities, scholarships, athletics, or any initiative across Grounds.
Five-year pledges offer steady support for the University, and the entire pledge amount counts towards your class totals. Thank you for taking time to consider your gift to the University in honor of your reunion.
Class Giving Counts!
Gifts and pledges to all University-related schools and programs during the fiscal year are recognized in the class total, which is measured in two ways: total dollars contributed and class participation rate. The fiscal year runs from July 1 through June 30.
There are many ways to support your class effort. Reunion giving recognizes contributions made to the annual fund, as well as endowment gifts, capital gifts, and planned gifts, such as bequests.
You can make your payments online with a credit card, or you can give cash, stocks, bonds, or mutual fund shares. Document a planned gift using the Recognition for Future Support form.

Giving Committee volunteers work throughout the year to successfully help the class achieve and exceed fundraising and giving goals.
