Princeton University Class of 1955





   Gifts to Annual Giving allow Princeton to provide extraordinary opportunities for learning and discovery, to extend the financial aid program to every student who needs it and to help meet emerging needs and challenges. 

   These unrestricted funds give Princeton the flexibility to undertake critical new initiatives such as developing the neuroscience program and attracting world renowned faculty before a permanent endowment is fully in place. Please respond to our class agent  Bill Shafer and his able assistant,  Betsy Grimes from the Princeton University Office for Annual Giving.

Dear Classmate,                                                                                                                          November 2017

 

We were so blessed with Princeton’s decision to invite us to join the Princeton Class of 1955 in September of 1951. Members of the arguably greatest class ever!

 

Thousands of Princetonians from every generation, including a mighty 66.9% of ’55, supported Annual Giving during the 2016-17 academic year.  As always, Annual Giving makes an important difference for today’s students.

 

It goes well beyond the numbers – although you can see the results on the enclosed page.  Our collective unrestricted gifts enable Princeton to guarantee financial aid to all admitted students who need it, to support important new initiatives, such as hiring eminent faculty in emerging areas of research in molecular biology and providing all incoming freshmen with opportunities to take part in meaningful service projects, and to sustain the many programs and offerings essential and distinctive to the Princeton experience.

 

We hope that we can count on your interest and support as we officially kick-off our Annual Giving campaign.  Please participate today.  You can use the enclosed envelope, call the gift line at 800-258-5421, or visit the website at www.princeton.edu/ag.

 

Together, we can make a lasting impact!

 

 With thanks,

Bill Shafer ‘55       Pete Hawryluk ‘55
