Connecticut College’s Class Gift Officer program is a dedicated network of 130+ alumni volunteers who work with Connecticut College Fund staff to promote fundraising initiatives and engagement opportunities with their classmates. Passionate about Connecticut College, Class Gift Officers play an important role in keeping alumni connected to the College and creating a sense of community among classmates.
Class Gift Officer core responsibilities include:

- Encourage classmates to make a gift to Conn through personalized, peer-to-peer outreach via email, phone and/or social media from a self-selected contact list.
- Send thank you messages to donors.
- Approve class fundraising letters and emails to classmates.
Class Gift Officers are crucial to the success of the Connecticut College Fund and help increase overall participation and dollars to the College. Alumni are three times more likely to donate when asked to do so by a peer. By encouraging classmates to give you share experiences, successes and why you choose to give. Your influence helps create opportunities for Conn students today and into the future.
