Subject: Join me in supporting Kenyon!

Dear <Name> or Classmate,

I hope this email finds you well during this busy time of year. 

As a class agent for Kenyon, I’ve chosen to volunteer my time to help keep classmates connected to the College. This year, I’m working with our class gift chair to reach out to as many classmates as possible to discuss the possibility of a gift to this year’s Kenyon Fund in honor of our class. 

Your support of the Kenyon Fund will make a real difference for today’s students because it touches every aspect of life on campus, and you can choose to give to the area that means the most to you. When we join forces with our classmates — each giving what we can — our collective investment inspires tomorrow’s leaders!  

I’d like to connect with you to share my experience and reason for supporting Kenyon and to see if we can count on you to make a contribution to our class gift this year. I’ll give you a call next week to find a time convenient for you to discuss this further. Is <PHONE> a good number to reach you?

In the meantime, please feel free to make your gift today. Visit gift.kenyon.edu to give through Kenyon’s secure online giving form, text KENYON to 41444 to receive a mobile giving form, or mail a check payable to Kenyon Annual Fund, College Relations Center, Gambier, OH  43022-9623.

Thank you for your thoughtful consideration to make a difference for Kenyon through a gift to the Kenyon Fund this year!

Sincerely,
<VolunteerName>
