Reunion

In alignment with University guidelines regarding COVID-19 (novel coronavirus), as shared by President Jim Ryan, we will suspend all events involving more than 100 people, which includes Darden Reunion Weekend, scheduled for 24–26 April. Our reunion team is already making plans for a wonderful weekend in Charlottesville on 23-25 October 2020. More details will be announced soon.

 

With Darden Reunion Weekend 2020 postponed until 23-25 October 2020, please find responses to the most frequently asked questions related to reunion weekend and how you can support the community during this time. For additional assistance, please contact the Office of Engagement at +1-434-243-8977 or alumni@darden.virginia.edu.

 

I registered for the April dates. Will I receive a refund? If so, how?

All guests should have received a full refund for Darden Reunion Weekend registration fees from the April dates. If you paid by credit/debit card, refunds will show up from “The Rector and Visitors of the University of Virginia” on your statement. Please contact the Office of Engagement if you did not receive your refund. Unfortunately, we are not able to transfer registration fees to any rescheduled events.

 

May I still make a gift in honor of my reunion?

Yes! We hope you will consider support for the 2020 Darden Annual Giving campaign ending 30 June. Gifts to the annual fund are the best way to help the School navigate the unprecedented challenges presented by the coronavirus pandemic. Click here to learn more and make a gift.

If you are interested in making a commitment above and beyond your support of the Darden Annual Fund, please contact Whitney Wilson, director of reunion giving, at +1-434-924-0706.

Given the uncertainty we face, the recognition period for 2020 Reunion Giving has been extended through 30 September. If you are able to make your reunion gift in advance of the fiscal year end on 30 June 2020, we hope that you will do so. We look forward to celebrating reunion giving results during the fall reunion.

Reunion Giving

Reunion giving allows classes to align philanthropy to impact the future of the School and honor its legacy of excellence.

The Darden Annual Fund serves as the foundation for reunion giving and provides critical support that enables the School to remain innovative, invest in top strategic priorities and respond nimbly to emerging opportunities. Gifts to the annual fund are the best way to help the School navigate the unprecedented challenges presented by the coronavirus pandemic. Click here to learn more and make a gift.

If you are interested in making a commitment above and beyond your support of the Darden Annual Fund, please contact Whitney Wilson, director of reunion giving, at +1-434-924-0706.
