Cornell's Sixth Annual Giving Day was held on Thursday, March 12, 2020.

What is it?  It is an annual day when alumni, parents, friends, and Big Red worldwide come together to make a difference for Cornell, and so too for the world.  Please look at the website for Cornell Giving Day 2020: https://givingday.cornell.edu to find answers to your questions and much more information about Giving Day 2020.

Please keep in mind that the Legendary Class of 1970 has three established gifts to Cornell: 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 (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).  Please use the following info when making a donation to any (or all!) of these three funds.

[12FEB2017 - A message from our President (and Class Correspondent) Connie Ferris Meyer]
On April 17, 2017, Martha E. Pollack, will become the 14th president of Cornell University!  She was elected unanimously by Cornell's Board of Trustees back on November 14, 2016.  Pollack is provost and vice president for academic affairs at the University of Michigan.  Her areas of expertise and responsibility over her years there are multiple and varied and most impressive.  Pollack's academic background in computer science and information science will serve the vast Cornell community well.

Upon being elected to be the 14th president of Cornell, Pollack stated the following, "I am humbled and honored to have been elected to lead this great university," Pollack said.  "As a private university with a public mission, Cornell is the embodiment of my own deeply held belief in the ability of knowledge to improve the human condition.  I can't wait to get started, and I look forward to meeting and working with Cornell's outstanding faculty, students, staff and alumni in Ithaca, New York City and around the globe."
