Thanks to the leadership of the Reunion co-chairs Kim Adams Post and Mollie Miller Thorn and the members of the 50th Reunion Committee, the Class of 1969 raised $3,144,025 for their Class Gift! In addition, the committee achieved 42 percent giving participation.

Thank you, Class of 1969!

But the counting period for the Class gift doesn't end until June 30, 2020, so it's not too late to make a gift.  All gifts given to Knox between July 1, 2017, and June 30, 2020, from members of the Class of 1969 will continue to count toward the 50th Reunion Class Gift.
