Young Alumni Association

The Valwood Young Alumni Association was created in 2016 as a bridge between Valwood and its newest alumni. Former Valwood students who have graduated in the last decade are automatically members of the YAA. With this new chapter formed under the Valwood Alumni Association, a focus will be placed on additional targeted programming and giving participation at a more comfortable level. Young Alumni now make up approximately 35% of the alumni association population as class sizes have grown over the years. Enjoy the benefits of networking with other alumni, staying connected to Valwood, and establishing new friendships along the way.

Young Alumni Giving: Every Gift Matters!

As former students of Valwood, you recognize the importance of funding beyond tuition. Support on all levels is essential to the future growth and development of this campus and its students. Valwood is proud to have committed alumni that realize the importance of consistent giving. Young Alumni giving is essential as it begins the basis for future support that Valwood can rely on in years to come. Continue the tradition by becoming a member of the newly formed YAA giving club, the 1968 Society.

1968 Society

Young Alumni Supporting the Annual Fund

Valwood was chartered in 1968, and in keeping with the school’s rich history of generosity, the 1968 Society has been formed to celebrate gifts to the school by members of the Young Alumni Association who are beginning their tradition of generosity.

Donating to the 1968 Society to support the Annual Fund creates flexible, unrestricted resources for Valwood leadership to spend annually. Many donors give specifically to funds that provide scholarships, academic programs, building needs and much more. However, these gifts enable the leadership to create financial sustainability for our institution thus not touching tuition dollars or increasing tuition. Increased sustainability only enhances the value of your degree and opportunities for future generations. Every Gift Matters!

Valwood Believes in Itself

Every year, Valwood faculty and staff have a 100% giving rate to the Annual Fund! They believe in the institution they serve and can attest to the quality of education our students receive.

Donors = Diversity

Growing financial needs of our students require more assistance. Any gifts to Valwood help free up funds that can go to helping out students that need it most!

Alumni Programming and School Pride

Valwood has embarked on renewed efforts towards alumni programming. With increased events and participation, Valwood Alumni are showing their pride more than ever! Giving is another way to show your vote of confidence in your school and celebrate future generations!

Financial Impact

Everyone agrees that the “new” campus is spectacular. It was a huge need that was able to be realized with the support and commitment of numerous donors and community partnerships. Valwood continues to be committed to its debt reduction plan which monies from Annual Fund contribute to each year. The long-term goal of debt reduction is working well and prevents increases in tuition.

The 1968 Society creates a special and unique opportunity for first-time donors. It is important to showcase your willingness to participate and support your alma mater. Every year that you give to the 1968 Society, your name will be listed in the Valwood Visions annual publication. You will also receive a token of appreciation and you will be included in special events for 1968 Society members.
