A Place for Purpose
Darden Reunion Weekend draws hundreds of alumni home each year to celebrate their place in Darden’s history, renew and deepen ties to the faculty and Darden community, and reflect on what the School means to them. Reunion giving allows classes to align philanthropy to impact the future of the School and honor its legacy of excellence.
Support of the Darden Annual Fund provides the flexibility to invest in Darden’s innovative programs and educational experiences on Grounds and around the world.
Endowments allow Darden to invest in critical strategic priorities in perpetuity, increasing support for the faculty, scholarships, Grounds, technology and programs for the next generation.
Planned gifts designated during a reunion year impact Darden’s future and allow alumni to meet their personal financial needs and leave a lasting legacy on the School. With a wide range of planned giving options, Darden invites you to power the purposeful who join the School community with a future stream of financial support.
Alumni can join their classmates for a class-specific philanthropic initiative, leveraging the collective impact of reunion giving and paving the way for success across the School’s strategic priorities. Previous reunion giving initiatives include creation of new scholarships, fully funding existing scholarships and a fund for faculty excellence.
