Our alumni have achieved more, travelled further, and impacted more lives than our founders could have ever hoped for. Whether you graduated a year ago or thirty years ago, we hope that you look back fondly on your time here and will be inspired to help see the next generation of Redeemer graduates flourish as you did.
For some of you, it’s the community and lifelong friendships that bring on the warm and fuzzy memories. For others, the impact of the education you received becomes more apparent with each passing year and your heart beats harder when you realize how much this place shaped you and your faith forever. Maybe it’s a bit of both.
You’re being challenged to a ReMatch!
ReMatch is a time to look back and remember what was great about your Redeemer education and an opportunity to help others experience the same. More literally, it’s an Alumni-only match challenge for the Re Campaign. $100K has been pledged or donated by a group of alumni to challenge even more alumni participation. Working together, can you match it?
As part of a new plan to engage our alumni better, we promise that this will be the only time we ask you directly for financial support for a full year.*
*(unless you’ve indicated we can do otherwise.)
35 days for 35 years!
From October 25 to November 28 (Giving Tuesday), Redeemer will be running a 35-day fundraising campaign where you can join your fellow classmates in some friendly competition to join the charge to renew Redeemer toward 2020 and beyond!!!
