Make a Gift

Class of 2017 Gift/Frame

Congratulations to our 2017 graduates! On June 4th, you will walk across the stage to receive that hard-earned degree.  Before you go off and celebrate with friends and family, we want to offer you a chance to mount that diploma in a beautiful frame like the one below, and at the same time give back to your alma mater.

The College has secured a limited number of frames at 20% below list price and is offering them to every graduate who makes a contribution of $100 or more to the Cambridge College Annual Fund. It’s that simple – make a tax-deductible gift to the College, get a frame that will do justice to your achievement and look great on the wall of your office, and in the process help us help students like you who hope to one day walk in your footsteps across that stage.

There are two options for making your gift and receiving your frame on Commencement Day:

500 for 500

The Cambridge College Alumni Relations Office has thrown out a challenge to its 35,000+ alumni around the globe! As you know, the College has sold its 1000 Massachusetts Ave campus in Cambridge and is moving across the Charles River to 500 Rutherford Avenue located at the heart of Boston’s historic Hood Park located in Charlestown. The new state of the art facility will provide greater access and amenities to its broadly diverse student population, including flexible classrooms, smart technology that supports both on-site teaching and student learning needs, collaborative meeting and gathering spaces, modern student-focused amenities, and a bookstore, to name a few.   

The challenge for alumni is to offer the College a “housewarming” gift, or rather, 500 gifts to be exact! Between March 1 and August 31, 2017, we are asking at least 500 alumni to make a gift to the College’s Annual Fund 2017. Any amount is welcome because our goal is 500 gifts for 500 Rutherford.  Ambitious? Absolutely, but we know our alumni can do it! We met the “45 for 45 Challenge” in 2016 raising over $4500, and we can make the “500 for 500 Challenge” one for the College record books!
