Class of 1964 Endowment

At the 40th class reunion, 1964 class members decided to be the first class to establish an endowment in the name of their class. With the goal to fully fund the endowment in five years, the class designated the money to help a Pius student whose family hits a sudden financial setback.

An initial $5,000 was invested with five years to raise a total of $25,000. “We were grandfathered in with the $25,000, but it is now takes $30,000 for a full endowment,” said Chuck Reynolds, member of the class.
Through mailings and e-mail campaigns the fund putted along. At the time of their 45th reunion in July, three months out from the deadline of October 2009, the class still had $10,000 to go. A flurry of fundraising activity began. “They quickly raised the $10,000, a huge effort for the size of the class,” Chuck explains.

As a class, we all share values of loyalty, friendship, and appreciation. We deeply appreciate the academics of Pius, the faculty, staff, the founding fathers and mothers of the school, the clergy and religious. And of course, we thank our parents, who sacrificed to send their children to Pius.

The endowment is a way to help pay it forward.
