The Endowment and our Keystone Society
Did you know that Princeton AlumniCorps has an endowment? Our endowment fund is professionally managed by TIAA, and had a market value of $1,470,584 on December 31, 2017. Each year, a portion (up to 4% maximum) of the fund is drawn on to support our current programs, with the balance reinvested to build for the organization’s future financial needs.
The endowment is funded by our supporters’ gifts of cash and appreciated securities, gifts from retirement accounts, and through important Keystone Society bequests of similar gifts and pledged life insurance.
The Keystone Society is comprised of our most generous and forward-thinking donors, members who have committed to ensuring the stability and long-term health of Princeton AlumniCorps. They understand the power of a planned gift. They know that the assets they leave to AlumniCorps will continue to grow, mobilizing people, organizations, and networks for the public good for generations to come. In 2017, we welcomed Lewis Miller ’49, Judith Hole Suratt s’55, and J. Rogers Woolston ’55 as our new Society members. Thank you for your pledge of support! New members will be inducted this February at our Leadership Circle Breakfast.
Leadership Circle Breakfast 2018
Each year Keystone Society members are honored with a small gathering featuring noted speakers. This year we are expanding the scope of the event by hosting a Leadership Circle Breakfast for all those who have demonstrated their commitment by giving significant time, talent, and treasure to AlumniCorps. Past guest speakers have included Nobel Prize-winner Professor Angus Deaton, noted first-amendment authority, Professor Margaret ‘Peggy’ Russell ’79, and last year we heard from well-known writer, documentarian, and media theorist Douglas Rushkoff ’83.
Our 2018 speaker is new AlumniCorps board member Dan-el Padilla Peralta ’06. Dan-el is Assistant Professor of Classics at Princeton University. He is currently finishing his latest book entitled Divine institutions: religion and state formation in middle republican Rome. His 2015 memoir Undocumented: A Dominican Boy’s Odyssey from a Homeless Shelter to Ivy League received an Alex Award from the American Library Association.
