The latest Harvard bulletin contained a little reminder of why Harvard has the largest endowment of any institution in the world.
The Rainmakers, Class of 1981
The class of 1981’s 25th reunion has set records all the way around. The class gift was the largest ever for a 25th reunion with $40 Million, participation was at an all-time high with 75 percent, the Class Report book boasts a record 989 entries, and over 800 classmates registered to attend. Mother Nature also lent a hand in the festivities, supplying the most rain for a 25th reunion. We will be sending everyone who braved the weather an umbrella that says “The Rainmakers, Class of 1981”.
That’s an average gift of $40,444 per graduate.
