|Announcing the 25th Anniversary Alumni Campaign|
March 28, 2014
Dear City Year Alumni,
We are excited to share a new opportunity for the alumni community to deepen our support of City Year as the organization celebrates the milestone of its 25th Anniversary.
With the leadership of the National Alumni Advisory Board and local site alumni boards, we are proud to announce the 25th Anniversary Alumni Campaign to help resource City Year’s long-term impact goal, raise awareness about City Year’s role in the education sector, build a broader culture of alumni giving and encourage the alumni community to continue to be involved in the organization’s long term growth and impact. The Alumni Campaign is a special initiative of City Year’s 25th Anniversary In School & On Track campaign which seeks to raise catalytic funds in support of City Year’s Long Term Impact strategy.
This campaign aims to build on the success of the 20th Anniversary Alumni & Families Campaign and to expand opportunities for alumni to participate in a broader culture of giving. Participation in the campaign requires a four year commitment to contribute (to the site of your choice) at whatever level is meaningful to you.
The goal of the 25th Anniversary Alumni Campaign is to secure 2,500 unique multi-year commitments from City Year Alumni nationwide.
Will you join us in making a 25th Anniversary gift today and pledging a multi-year commitment at a giving level that is meaningful to you?
As a special incentive, alumni who commit $100 per year for the next four years by April 15 will be invited to attend City Year’s 25th Anniversary Gala in Boston - with the Boston Pops and a very special guest to be announced soon - on May 22 courtesy of Bain Capital (while supplies last.)* Over two thousand City Year supporters, alumni, donors, and corps members -- plus notable champions to be announced in the coming weeks -- will attend this special celebration.
For more information about this special campaign and to make your pledge today, visit the 25th Anniversary Alumni Campaign webpage.
Thank you for being part of City Year’s legacy of 25 years of powerful service and for your consideration of an alumni gift to accelerate and strengthen our impact in schools and communities.
Yours in service,
Trude Goodman ‘99 and Nick Barnes ‘05
Co-Chairs, National Alumni Advisory Board

Alumni Representative, National Board of Trustees
