Giving and Dean's Cup

Reunion Giving

Reunions are milestones—occasions for alumni to commemorate your place in Cornell College of Veterinary Medicine’s history, reflect on what Cornell has meant to you, and renew your ties to the place and to one another. Reunion celebrations are also a time when classes focus their fundraising efforts to increase giving in support of veterinary education and research. Each year these campaigns raise vital dollars for the Veterinary College’s Annual Fund, which is the unrestricted support the College uses to meet its needs each and every year.  Or, individuals may choose to make a gift to their existing class scholarship, to the hospital, or to Baker Institute or the Feline Health Center.  Any and all gifts made by members of the class to the Veterinary College count towards the class’s Reunion total.

Dean’s Cup

The Dean’s Cup is awarded by the dean during Reunion Weekend to the class out of school 50 years or fewer with the highest percentage of the class making a gift.  A plaque, commemorating the winning class and their percent participation, is added to the cup which is displayed in the dean’s office throughout the year.

Make a gift

You may make a gift by calling 607-253-3745, by filling out and mailing back the pledge card sent to you at various times throughout the year, or by visiting our giving page.

Thank you!

Your support is greatly appreciated. We look forward to welcoming you home at Reunion time!
