104: Young Alumni Events

Recorded On: 02/19/2019


Events serve a dual purpose when it comes to engaging young alumni. While helping alumni stay connected to one another and to their alma mater, events also steward current donors and cultivate prospective new ones. Whether you are focusing on small gatherings or looking for ways to include recent graduates in your institution’s larger activities, events can be a great way to advance your programs.
