Dear Fellow Sagehens,

I hope your start to the new year found you and yours safe and healthy. I am thrilled that spring semester is well underway and that the campus is buzzing with students once again. I’m also glad to see alumni events and programs happening, both in person and online. The restart of Regional Alumni Chapters is fantastic, and I was happy to host a gathering for the Los Angeles Alumni Chapter myself this past fall. If you haven’t looked to see which chapters are up and running already, I encourage you to check them out and get involved.

As the National Chair of Annual Giving, I’m so pleased to see the support for the Pomona Annual Fund that has been coming in from our alumni community around the world. Giving Tuesday 2021 was such a fun and meaningful opportunity to make an impact for Sagehens, and it was exciting to see the $10,000 bonus gift unlocked when we hit our goal of 447 donors! 47 CHIRPS to the Alumni Board who rallied their classmates and contributed to help us surpass our goal!

With spring here, the clock is ticking. As we already know, Pomona offers an educational experience that drives students to explore their intellectual passions and immerse themselves in problem-solving for the world today. Our gifts help to create that experience. So if you haven’t already, please join me in giving before June 30. Let’s finish 2021-22 strong!

Wishing you an enjoyable and healthy spring,
