A Community Bulletin

Princeton University has announced that its annual giving campaign raised $49 million this year, the highest in the University's history, with 58.5 percent of undergraduate alumni participating. The amount, which represents a 21 percent increase from the 2005-06 figure of $40 million, comes from a broad range of constituencies, including major reunion classes, non-major reunion classes, graduate alumni, and parents. Graduate alumni giving set a record for the fifth consecutive year with $1,481,416, 23 percent more than last year. Princeton parents gave $1,899,322. The campaign drew the largest number of undergraduate alumni donors ever, with 32,872 making gifts. The classes of 1925, 1928, and 1929 all reached 100 percent participation from their total of six surviving members. For more information, visit
