Owen Graduate School of Management Reunion Contacts

Owen Graduate School Giving

The Owen Circle The Owen Circle recognizes leadership level annual gifts to Owen. Donations from this engaged group enable Dean Johnson to meet the school’s emerging needs and challenges, create innovative programs and fund new opportunities for growth. Alumni can join the Owen Circle with a minimum gift of $2,500 (alumni from the Classes of 2009–2018 can join with a minimum gift of $1,000).

As an Owen Circle member, you will receive a discounted rate for Reunion.

What counts as a Reunion gift?

When you participate in Reunion giving, you're adding to the cumulative generosity of generations of Owen alumni. Gifts of all sizes help ensure that today's students have the same incredible experience that you had. With a gift, you also put your class closer to achieving its Reunion fundraising goals.

Vanderbilt recognizes its most loyal donors with membership in the Oak Leaf Society. Membership is attained after the second year of consecutive giving. Learn more about the Oak Leaf Society, including information about buying back years.

Any outright gift (cash or securities), matching company gift, payment on a pledge or new multiyear pledge made between July 1, 2018, and December 31, 2019, will count toward the Reunion class giving total and participation rate. To be counted in Reunion 2019 participation totals, the gift or first pledge payment must be received by December 31, 2019. The full value of the pledge will be included in Reunion 2019 dollar totals. Also, planned gifts (e.g., documented bequests) count for the Classes of 1989, 1984, 1979, 1974.

Most Reunion gifts are unrestricted to the Owen Annual Fund, but you may designate your gift to the area of Owen that matters most to you—to a student organization or specific department that meant a lot to you during your time as a student or to a scholarship fund that changes the lives of current students.

Thank you for supporting Owen Graduate School of Management!
