Alumni associations are an important part of a school's ability to raise funds. They reach out to all alumni to encourage continued financial support and to provide additional funding to enable the school to keep on moving forward.
An alumni association promotes and encourages a positive image of the school. Through the alumni association a school seeks to gain support from the school community and the local community.
An alumni association can increase visibility of the school. It can also provide networking opportunities for its members. Recent graduates may find it beneficial to join the alumni association to meet previous graduates and receive advice and job leads.
An alumni association preserves and carries on school traditions. Most schools require the support of the alumni association to make sure future generations are aware of the school's history.
Alumni associations generally offer scholarships to current and incoming students. These scholarships can be based on need or academic merit.
All we ask of you at present is to mail or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and assist us to get this very important project off the ground. The Alumni Foundation is an integral part of this school continuance and we will be in regular touch with the latest news from school as well as looking to arrange more “get togethers” not just in Kenya, but wherever you might be. Our ambition is to register 1000 former Greensteds students and no better place than to start with yours right now.
