Reunion Giving | Annual Fund

Return to the Brotherhood.  Reunions are a great time to see old friends, strengthen friendships, and relive all of the memories of the Wabash experience. We need you at Big Bash Reunion in June to make these conversations rich and wonderful.

Your reunion year is also a great time to get serious about supporting Wabash. Return, reconnect, and reminisce on how Wabash impacted your life. Then consider ensuring this brotherhood and experience continues for current and future Wabash men with a gift to the Annual Fund

Each year, in collaboration with the Society of Class Agents, the Wabash Advancement Office establishes reunion attendance and giving goals for classes celebrating reunions at the June Big Bash Reunion Weekend.  Classes who meet their reunion giving goals are in the running for the awards listed at the right.

Big Bash Reunion Awards

The Edmund O. Hovey Award is awarded at the Sunday Brunch of Big Bash Weekend to the reunion class with the highest level of alumni participating with a gift to the College during the current reunion year.

The Donor Challenge is available to all classes celebrating a reunion at the June Big Bash Weekend. If a reunion class reaches their reunion year donor goal (listed in the table at the left), then their class will achieve the Donor Challenge and have an open bar instead of a cash bar at their class dinner on Saturday evening of Big Bash Weekend.
