Class Agents play a vital role in the Dana Fund as they are the link between their classmates and Dana Hall. Class Agents are responsible for encouraging members of their class to support the Dana Fund as well as keeping them informed about Dana Hall news and events. We rely on the support from our alumnae every year and Class Agents help educate fellow alumnae about the importance of giving back.
Class Correspondents help the School maintain accurate alumnae information by getting updated information about careers, professional and personal achievements, and biographical information (including updated email and address information). Class Correspondents are also responsible for producing a strong Class Notes column for each issue of the Dana Hall Bulletin.
The Alumnae Leadership Committee was formed in 2009-10 in an effort to increase personal interaction with our alumnae, specifically the top 200 donors to our Dana Fund know as leadership donors. Leadership donors make gifts of $1,000 or more to the Dana Fund. Members of the committee thank donors for their past support, particularly for their leadership role in providing ongoing support for Dana Hall, inform them about the exciting things happening at the school today, and make a personal ask for their continued support. Members of the committee are assigned specific donors to contact and follow up with throughout the year.
The Reunion Event Co-chairs work with the Director of Alumnae Relations to plan events for and to encourage attendance at Reunion. Each Co-chair will be provided with a Reunion Event Chair Handbook and is responsible for reading and referring to this handbook to help with planning for Reunion. Co-chairs also will work with their Class Gift Chair and Class Correspondent to help coordinate communications and information to their class.
"Dana offers many great opportunities including a trip to South Africa every other year. I never in my wildest dreams thought I’d be visiting South Africa, let alone with some of my closest friends. The trip enabled us to interact with real South Africans as they experienced their real lives, an opportunity I could never have had as a tourist."
