Rallying GOLD Alumni
Discover how BC GOLD Leadership Council Co-chairs Danielle V. Auriemma '10, David Levy '06, and Thomas McGrath '04 are educating fellow "Graduates Of the Last Decade" on the importance of being active alumni.
WHAT IS THE GOLD COUNCIL’S TOP PRIORITY?
After their four years on campus, Boston College graduates leave with a sense of pride and overall enthusiasm for BC. Our priority is to ensure that recent grads continue that excitement by staying involved, remaining engaged, and financially supporting the school that we all love and want to see continue to flourish.
—THOMAS MCGRATH '04
HOW WILL THE COUNCIL DRIVE EXCITEMENT FOR THE CAMPAIGN AMONG YOUNG ALUMNI?
The council expects to create meaningful events, especially those that mimic the undergraduate experience, and to promote the benefits of making a financial gift. Furthermore, it's important that we convey the significant role that young alumni can have in aiding the success and goals of the overall campaign. Since the Light the World campaign launch in 2008, BC GOLD has increased the number of young alumni donors to more than 6,000—a growth of nearly 65 percent.
—DANIELLE V. AURIEMMA '10
WHAT CAN ALL ALUMNI DO TO ENHANCE TODAY'S BC EXPERIENCE?
The best rule I can think of is: "Pay it forward." The reason we had an awesome BC experience is because of those who came before us. We have to keep in mind that our actions can benefit current students and soon-to-be alums. We can grow that mentality by engaging as alumni and building a network with the newest generation.
—DAVID LEVY '06
