Reunion Challenge to the Class of 1963

Andrew and Andrea Simon

In honor of your 55th Reunion, Executive Committee Co-chair Andrew L. Simon, AB '63, and Andrea J. Simon, PhD, have established a generous $50,000 Class of 1963 Reunion Challenge that will increase the impact of your gift.

How the Challenge Works

While you may give to any area of the university to participate, the Simons have chosen to support a new initiative of the Skandalaris Center for Interdisciplinary Innovation and Entrepreneurship. The Simon Initiative will encourage gender, intellectual, and socio-economic diversity in the entrepreneurial process at Washington University.

Your gift of any amount and designation will be matched up to $50,000. 

  Your Gift Match Provides

New gifts, increased gifts,
and multi-year pledges

$1 $2
Renewed gifts $1 $1

If you are a current donor, please consider increasing your contribution or making a five-year pledge to take advantage of this generous 2:1 match. If you choose to make a multi-year pledge, the entire amount will count toward your Class Gift, even though the full pledge amount is not due this year.

How Do I Participate?

Simply make a gift or pledge payment of any amount to any area of the university between July 1, 2017 and June 30, 2018.
