Class of 1971
Welcome   |  Logout  | Search


Greetings Tiger,

Thank you for thinking about supporting the Save the WILD Life Fund ("SWLF") so it can continue its efforts for Princeton’s Class of 1971, the "WILD Life Class."


SWLF's central missions are:

1. To make '71's Major Reunions accessible to Classmates who need financial help to attend

2. To reduce 1971 Classmates' Reunion Registration costs

3. To welcome back the great music from our college days to the Class of 1971 Reunions and to Princeton.


As you consider making a gift to SWLF, please know that: 

  • Between our 40th and 50th Reunions, more Classmates gave more to SWLF than ever before (more than 10% of the Class). Thanks to those of you who helped!
  • At our 45th, SWLF provided support to more Classmates directly and indirectly than ever before. 
  • Without SWLF support, registration fees for our 25th, 35th, 40th and 45th Reunions would have been $100 to $250 more per Classmate at each Reunion.
  • Those Reunions experiences would have been far less memorable, and ‘71’s record-setting attendance figures could not have been achieved. That’s yet another reason enough to thank our SWLF donors!
  • Finally, no Princeton Class has brought more Rock & Roll Hall of Fame performers to its Reunions stage than 1971, thanks to SWLF – and its many supporters.

We hope we can count on your support as we conclude 1971’s “50th Reunion Year of Celebration,” scheduled for May 18-22, 2022. (Please pencil those dates into your calendar!)



SWLF continues to support Class efforts to

  • Raise 1971 attendance at both Major and "off-year” Reunions
  • Encourage participation at other Class events and 
  • Increase Annual Giving participation, while reducing costs for Classmates and their families

Remember that the entertainment that distinguishes 1971 as one of the "Great Reunions Classes” has never been part of our Reunions registration fees but is supported entirely by individual Class members through the SWLF.


We hope you will consider making a gift to SWLF for $71 or $197.10 or $500 or whatever you are comfortable giving to mark our 50th anniversary celebration year.  These gifts add up, and will make a meaningful difference in 1971’s Reunion experience and our attendance figures, as in years past.
