Graduates Of the Last Decade (GOLD)
Alumni who have graduated from Stevens within the last ten years (2010 - 2020) immediately become members of GOLD upon graduation. When GOLD alumni make a gift to Stevens, they establish a personal legacy of support. One of the most important components of being GOLD is helping to create a stronger future for our alma mater. Many GOLD alumni mentor current students, serve on a committee within the Stevens Alumni Association, or volunteer with a Stevens Regional and Affinity Alumni Group.
Being GOLD has its privileges:
- Reduced pricing for most alumni events
- Programming designed especially for recent graduates
- Special associate level recognition for the Edwin A. Stevens Society, Stevens’ premier leadership giving society
- Networking opportunities with Stevens graduates who are leaders in their industries
- An exclusive GOLD only event during Alumni Weekend
- The opportunity to connect with students for career building relationships
Alumni who are Graduates Of the Last Decade are in the unique position of enjoying fresh memories of their recent time on campus while building a network in the early, dynamic years of their careers. For the latest alumni news and updates visit our Facebook Page and follow us on Instagram.
Why Giving to Stevens is Important as GOLD
Here are the top reasons that students and alumni continue to give to Stevens. Why do you give?
For the past 150 years+ Stevens alumni and students have come together to support Stevens. Most recently with The Power of Stevens campaign that just concluded in 2021, more than 14,000 donors — members of the Board of Trustees, the President’s Leadership Council, alumni, faculty, staff, students, parents and industry partners — would make more than 45,000 distinct gifts to the campaign.
Giving = Gratitude
Stevens has changed your lives by providing outstanding academic resources, a quality education, unique opportunities, lasting friendships, and countless memories. Your support both now and after you graduate is a way of saying "thank you" while helping future generations gain access to the same opportunities.
Raise Our Ranking
Your donations now and in the future, regardless of the gift’s size, play an important role in maintaining the value of a Stevens degree. – Donor participation is a key criterion in most college ranking methodologies, including U.S. News & World Report.
Tuition Doesn't Cover It
Did you know that tuition only covers a fraction of the total cost of your educational experience? The remaining cost to run Stevens is funded by the generosity of alumni and others, research, and other revenue streams. Your contributions help to enhance the Stevens experience for all students – now and in the future.
It All Adds Up
You may think that your gift couldn't possibly have any impact, but when combined with gifts from fellow alumni and students, together they make a huge impact. Every donation makes a tangible impact on campus by providing funding to organizations and initiatives that improve the student experience.
