Alumni make an impact

Each year, gifts from our alumni community account for nearly 25 percent of the school’s fundraising goals. Recognizing the uniqueness of the Poly community and the opportunities and experiences afforded by a Poly education, alumni have maintained a strong commitment to supporting Poly financially. By contributing to Poly at any level, alumni donors ensure current and future students benefit in the same ways they did when they were Poly students. Many alumni choose to give a special contribution to Poly in honor of their reunion.

During the reunion celebrations, the Alumni Association presents two giving awards, the Gosney Award to the class with the greatest cumulative giving and the Willis Stork Award to the class with the highest participation rate, to recognize the increased participation and support. Learn more about the Poly Fund and how your gift makes an impact.

Stay connected

Alumni and Reunion Weekend comes once a year, but you can keep in touch with the alumni community around the world year-round. Learn about the many ways to connect through online communities, events, volunteer and leadership opportunities, student engagement, and career resources by visiting Poly Alumni Association website.
