Any outright gift or multiyear pledge received between July 1, 2019, and June 30, 2020, will count toward your reunion class gift. For multiyear pledges, donors and their affiliated class will be recognized for the entire commitment. If a gift has already been made this fiscal year, it will be counted in the reunion totals.

Your reunion gift counts as your annual contribution to the school. We may also ask you to continue to support the Annual Fund in non-reunion years.

  • Make a multiyear pledge by emailing

  • Contribute by filling in the online giving form and selecting "Make a Reunion gift" from the drop-down menu. You also can set up recurring payments online.

Yes. Reunion class gifts support the school's top priorities and help close the gap between tuition and the total cost of educating a student. Every dollar makes a difference for current students. Furthermore, collective alumni support helps Chicago Booth retain the best faculty, attract the brightest students, and expand its global impact.

We look forward to welcoming you back to campus.
