Incoming first-year students from the London area gather with alumni members of the London Vanderbilt Chapter for a Spring Tea in May at the home of Patti Early White, BA’76, and her husband, George. Gifts to the Sustaining Alumni program support events like this.

As an alumnus of Vanderbilt, you are automatically a member of the Vanderbilt Alumni Association and entitled to all its benefits. However, the Alumni Association relies on the generous support of voluntary alumni gifts to the Sustaining Alumni program.

“Every tailgate, chapter event, career program and Reunion is made possible when you donate to the Vanderbilt Alumni Association Sustaining Alumni program,” says James Stofan, associate vice chancellor for alumni relations. “Even your quarterly e-newsletter, Alumni eXclusive, and Vanderbilt’s online community, VUconnect, as well as the chapter communications that keep you informed—all of these require gifts in order to be maintained and grow.

“Your gift, in any amount, allows the Alumni Association to expand programs that will directly benefit you and all Vanderbilt alumni for the rest of your life.”

The Sustaining Alumni program was formerly known as “Sustaining Membership,” but the word “membership” has been removed to reflect your automatic inclusion in the Alumni Association without the requirement of annual dues. You may have been a student only a few short years, but you’re Vanderbilt for life—and we’re here to make it a journey worth taking!
