About


Celebrate Giving Day with the Class of 1971

Your gift to our reunion campaign will help us reach our $1 million reunion goal and will count toward Norwich's overall Giving Day 500 donor goal. 

To encourage participation on Giving Day, Norwich is offering the following incentive gifts. Be sure to select your incentive when you checkout:

Gifts of $30 or more are eligible for a Norwich mask. 

Gifts of $1000 or more are eligible for an engraved brick on the Upper Parade Ground. 

All gifts will be recognized in a new initiative we are calling 'Class of 2021, we've got your back.' Your name will be printed with a short congratulatory note for students to see during the graduation ceremony.  Your gift will remind the Class of 2021 that the Norwich Family has their back, even when we cannot celebrate their accomplishments in person.  Unless you choose to remain anonymous, you will be recognized automatically. 


A Message from the Class of 1971 Reunion Committee

Our committee has set an ambitious goal to raise $1 million from at least 159 classmates in honor of our reunion.  As of April 2021, we have raised more than $356,000 from 102 donors.  

Increasing the affordability of a Norwich education is a top priority for the university, especially given the fact that many Norwich students and their families have been adversely affected by the global pandemic.  That is why we are encouraging gifts to our two scholarships - The Class of 1971 Jack Stricos Scholarship and the Class of 1971 Memorial Scholarship. 

Our class has already endowed, thanks to Ernie Wong, the 1971 Jack Stricos Scholarship, and its funding has exceeded $120,000. We are actively working to endow the new Class of 1971 Memorial Scholarship to honor all deceased members of our class. We must raise $50,000 within three years to endow this scholarship, which will allow it to be awarded annually in perpetuity. Both scholarships benefit students who have demonstrated leadership, academic excellence, and participation in extracurriculars. 

Will you join us and make a five-year commitment to the Class of 1971 scholarships?

If you are able, please make a gift of $1,000 a year (or $84/month) for a total commitment of $5,000 over five years.  Your total commitment will count toward our fundraising totals and be included in the check we present on the field during the alumni parade.  

This reunion is an important one for our class because it is our 50th reunion when we will join the Old Guard.  Norwich University relies on the Old Guard to keep our traditions strong.  With your help, the legacy of the class of 1971 will live up to those who have come before us. 

We have all made our reunion gifts.  Please join us support the Class of 1971 scholarships.
