Young Alumni Brotherhood Society
In 2019, the Prep decided to restructure the Young Alumni Giving Society. Up to this point, the society had a $500 threshold across all 15 years of young rams. Understanding the income disparity between new alumni, and those who have been away from the Prep for 10 or 15 years, the Alumni Office decided to implement a new system, called The Young Alumni Brotherhood Society with tiered thresholds based on age. Those tiers are reflected below:
|1-4 Years Out (2020-2017)||
|5-9 Years Out (2016-2012)||$100|
|10-14 Years Out (2011-2007)||$250|
|15 Years Out (2006)||$500|
As with all Giving Societies at the Prep, membership will earn you publication in the Annual Report of Giving, published in the Ramview magazine every Fall.
THE LOYALTY SOCIETY
In addition to the tiered system, the Prep would also like to reward those Young Alumni who have been especially loyal and consistent in their support for the Prep. For those who have consistently donated at their tiered amount since graduation, complimentary invitations will be extended to the following events at the following points in time:
1-5 Years Out
|Complimentary Ticket to Oktoberfest (Fall Following 5 Year Reunion)|
1-10 Years Out
|Complimentary Ticket to Your 10 Year Reunion|
1-15 Years Out
|Invitation to the President's Club Reception and Dinner (Fall Following 15 Year Reunion)|
Understanding that this system is new, and not wanting to penalize any Prep supporter who either has missed years since graduation, or misses any future years for any reason, the Prep will allow young alumni to “buy back” the years that they missed, at the amount that they would have paid, in order to stay in consideration for loyalty benefits. If you have any questions regarding your past giving, or “buying back” years you might have missed, please contact Ryan Fink ‘10, Assistant Director of Development and Data Analytics.
A recent survey of Young Alumni indicated that the most valuable takeaway from your Prep experience was the friendships that you made, and the brotherhood you formed while you were here. Many Prep Alumni find that their best and most constant friends throughout their lives are those they made at the Prep. Giving back to Fordham Prep embodies this brotherhood, and gives today’s students the chance to come away with a positive Fordham Prep experience that will continue to shape them for years to come.
We hope you will use the form below to make a gift, and join the Young Alumni Brotherhood Society today. As always, thank you for your support and dedication to Fordham Prep. For information on Young Alumni events and other news, visit fordhamprep.org/youngalumni.
