Reunion giving will continue to provide a vital source of support for Oberlin students. As your reunion approaches, we hope you will consider how a new or increased gift to Oberlin can honor your past while supporting the college’s future.

Oberlin alumni have a long history of securing their legacy through collective philanthropy. Over and above continuing support of the Annual Fund, each class establishes a legacy in championing the next generation of Obies!
