[from an announcement by Joel Malina,
Vice President, University Relations]
During the past week, as thousands of Cornellians have mourned the passing of President
Garrett, they have found many moving ways to remember and honor her. On
the Ithaca campus, hundreds of students held a candlelight vigil in front of Willard Straight and paid tribute by sharing
music and their memories of President Garrett. Colleagues and friends
on campus and across the country joined Cornellians to offer reflections on her passing. To honor her wishes
and her legacy, Weill Cornell Medicine has established a fund to advance research
in colon cancer. A second fund, Student Scholarships in memory of President
Elizabeth Garrett, will support students with need on the Ithaca campus. Her
family asks that memorial gifts be directed to either fund. At
this time of great sadness for Cornell, the relationships you have built with fellow
alumni can be an invaluable source of mutual support. Please encourage
them to connect with one another and with the university through Cornell's social
media and cornell.edu.

24MAR2015 A message from our President (and Class Correspondent) Connie Ferris
Greetings to ALL of my fellow Class of 1970 classmates! I expect that
most or all of you have received at least one e-mail message from Cornell about
the First Annual Cornell Giving Day! Perhaps you have received several
such notifications from various aspects of the University. I have!
Cornell's Giving Day will be tomorrow, Wednesday, March 25, 2015.
I realize that many of you have very specific areas of Cornell to which you donate
funds. That being noted and said, I want to be sure you are aware that
the Legendary Class of 1970 has established three funds that are in fact
gifts from our class to the University and the Cornell Community.
We have two endowments, The Class of 1970 Scholarship Fund (which has been
awarding scholarships to Cornell undergrads annually for many years) and The Spirit
of the Class of 1970 Fund (being used to support and sustain: 1. Touchdown
the Big Red Bear; 2. The Cornell Cheerleading Squad; and 3. The Annual Senior Athlete
Banquet.). Our third fund is The Class of 1970 Art Fund (which
has been used to purchase or assist in obtaining several works of art for Cornell's
Johnson Museum of Art). Further information on the Art Fund can be found
here on our
website. I would be happy to provide more info to anyone who is interested.
Should you decide to donate funds to one of our '70 Funds, either tomorrow for the
Giving Day, or for our ongoing 45th Reunion Cornell Fund Campaign, or any time,
please use these names and fund numbers:
1. The Class of 1970 Scholarship Endowment Fund : #112322
2. The Class of 1970 Art Fund: # 0000553
3. The Spirit of the Class of 1970 Endowment Fund: #0010033
Thanks for your support of Cornell and the Class of 1970. Hope you see
many of you at our 45th Reunion in just about 70 days!
