Reunion Class Goals

Come back! Please mark your calendar for Darden Reunion 2021 and begin making travel plans. Check out the list of hotels and book your room now. Charlottesville hotels are in high demand that weekend due to annual spring events in the area.

Give back! Darden has embarked on the historic Powered by Purpose campaign, and our class has chosen to participate by establishing a scholarship fund that will pay tribute to our friend, Mark Kaish. We hope that you will be a part of this meaningful effort for our class and Mark's family.

The Darden Reunion Giving recognition period for classes ending in 0 and 5 has been extended through 30 September 2020. We ask that you consider making a five-year pledge to the Class of 1985 Mark A. Kaish Bicentennial Scholarship at a level that is meaningful for you. Your commitment will help our scholarship grow into a dedicated fund to support students with demonstrated financial need.

Please visit the Darden Reunion Giving webpage to learn more and participate.
