Participation in our giving program is essential! Although you are building your career, family and future, you can make a difference in the lives of students at Le Moyne by participating in the Young Alumni Giving Program.
By making a gift of ANY amount, you are counted toward our alumni participation rate, which helps Le Moyne rank higher in national surveys such as US News and World Report, which adds value to your degree.
More importantly, your gift combined with those of others makes a huge impact on current students. 90% of Le Moyne students receive financial aid and 25% of undergraduates are first-generation college students. Young alumni support helps to ensure that they are not denied the benefit of a Le Moyne education simply because they cannot afford it. Last year, the combined effort of over 450 young alumni secured more than $30,000 in student support.
Every gift, no matter the size, makes a difference!
Volunteers on the committee act as a liaison between their classmates and the College; fostering a sense of community that transcends graduation. By encouraging class affiliation, brainstorming events, mentoring current students, and encouraging financial support of the Le Moyne College Fund, young alumni volunteers are essential in achieving the College's ambitious engagement, participation, and dollar goals. Members of the Young Alumni Volunteer Committee will work closely with a Le Moyne staff liaison on initiatives and projects to further the College’s goals, mission and overall young alumni experience.
If you are a graduate of the last ten years, and are interested in getting involved, contact Brooke Merrifield at (315) 445-4632.
YAPC membership distinguishes leadership level donors among our young alumni. Many have just begun their careers or started a family, but feel strongly enough about their Le Moyne experience to ‘stretch’ their giving to the leadership level. Young alumni that give at President's Club level for their graduating year receive the same perks and benefits as our traditional President's Club members.
Giving levels for young alumni (out 10 years or fewer) are modified according to the number of years since graduation:
1 year out - Gifts of $100 or more
2 years out - Gifts of $200 or more
3 years out - Gifts of $300 or more
4 years out - Gifts of $400 or more

More than 10 years since graduation - Gifts of $1,000 or more.
