Alumni House Campaign
Welcome Home Alumni!
Every day will be homecoming with the long-awaited completion of the Alumni House later this year. We look forward to greeting you soon, not as visitors but as family members, to this historically significant structure in the heart of Belmont’s beautiful campus! The building is the last remaining club house from the Ward-Belmont era and a part of our school’s vast educational history.
As renovations began, the many possibilities of the 1920’s club house were revealed. Imagine the surprise and excitement when it was discovered that the original vaulted ceiling and grand beams still existed behind the dropped ceiling installed decades ago. Original woodwork, pocket doors and features virtually impossible to duplicate today all still exist. With the realization that this project calls for a complete transformation inclusive of required modern amenities and safety upgrades in addition to a historically accurate restoration, a campaign was launched to raise the required funds.
With the support of generous alumni, we accept the fundraising challenge and are dedicated to securing the funds required to create a fitting home for all alumni while preserving one of Belmont’s oldest structures. In fact, almost 70% of the $500,000 needed in gifts and pledges have already been secured, making the Alumni House a certain reality!
Join the Cause
To truly make this a home for all alumni, we ask that every Belmont graduate lock arms and help create this home-away-from-home together. Gifts of every size are needed and valued as we work towards reaching our goal by December 31, 2013. Beyond an annual gift you may already be giving, please consider supporting the Alumni House Campaign with a special gift or pledge this year. Gifts may be made in honor or in memory of a loved one. Recognition and naming opportunities exist at virtually all levels of giving:
- Gifts of $25 or more will be placed in a commemorative book that will remain in the Alumni House for viewing.
- Gifts of $1,000 or more will be placed on a commemorative plaque which will hang in the Alumni House as a permanent tribute to those who have supported this project in such a significant way.
- Naming of offices, special spaces and home features begins at $5,000 with opportunities for individual recognition plaques. These gifts may be pledged and fulfilled over several years.
The only support we are missing is yours! Please join the cause and make your gift or pledge today!
