Message From Maryellen Picciuto, WP-AOG

Dear Society Leaders,

This past summer at our annual Class of 1967 West Point Alumni Leaders Conference, many of you learned of the WPAOG’s ongoing comprehensive campaign “For US All” for West Point.  After the conference, so many of you pointed your membership toward our website for the conference summary, or to your own notes and summaries.  For that, we’re very grateful.  Your efforts have helped to make grads aware of this important fundraising campaign.

This comprehensive campaign is our number one priority at the WPAOG.  We need your help to keep (or get) this effort on everyone’s radar screen.  To that end, I ask that you mention it at your Founders Day event this year.  Suggested text is:

As some of you may know, the West Point Association of Graduates is spearheading a $350 million comprehensive fundraising campaign to meet the Academy’s key “Margin of Excellence” needs into the future.  The WPAOG has secured 34% of the goal to date, and looks forward to working with graduates and friends across the country to make the campaign a success. 

I am now pleased to introduce [West Point Guest Speaker] who will update us on what is happening at the Academy today and remind us why it is deserving of our involvement and support.

Should you have any campaign questions, don’t hesitate to contact the WPAOG’s Campaign Director, Vivian Shannon, Vivian.shannon@wpaog.org or 845-446-1542.

VP of Development, Kristin Sorenson, will update all alumni leaders again this summer on campaign progress at our leaders conference.

Thanks so much for your consideration.  Good luck and best wishes as the Founders Day events get under way.

Best regards,
