MIT Association of Alumni and Alumnae staff and volunteers celebrated accomplishments of the just-ended fiscal year with an event at the Faculty Club on July 27. Among the year's highlights: record-breaking Alumni Fund contributions totaling $32.6 million, an increase of 13 percent over last year; record-setting donation totals from the 25th and 30th reunion classes; and doubled senior gift participation by the graduating class. Nearly 30,000 alumni and 1,130 parents made gifts to the capital campaign during the fiscal year.
