Our Time, Our Future

The AADC community encourages, enriches, and lifts up one another. As we look toward GivingTuesday, December 1st, and beyond to our Centennial in 2022, we come together in support of advancing our alumnae association. 

LATEST UPDATES: Did you know that the AADC has received special matching gift challenges?  You can increase the impact of your gift when you donate and accelerate the AADC’s mission in motion.  

All Years New Donor Challenge:  Five loyal alumnae, from different graduation years, have joined together to offer an All Class Years New Donor challenge. Irene Dale Goldfarb '50, Elizabeth Trocolli Boris '64, AADC President Jeanne Fox '75, Liz Murray '87, and Mary Papamarkou '90 invite you to join them in strengthening our alumnae community.  They will match, dollar for dollar, any gift from a new supporter up to a maximum of $6,500.  

Class of ’71 Challenge: the fabulous foursome of Mary Chyb, Mary Elizabeth Neary, Susan Schwirck, and Sharon Burton Turner will match, dollar for dollar, any gift from a classmate, up to a total of $7,000 in honor of their 50th Reunion.  

Class of ’81 Challenge: Valerie Anderson ’81, AADC Executive Director, and Bertha Aiken ’81 are challenging 40 other classmates to join them with a gift of any amount, in honor of the amazing class of '81's 40th reunion. Valerie and Bertha will each contribute $1,000. Make it 40 for your 40th!  

Our thanks to these alumnae leaders for these incredible opportunities!

Since 1922, 98 years ago, the core of the AADC mission has been connecting alumnae, near and far. Our AADC community of over 39,000 alumnae and friends care, share, make lifelong friendships, build networks of smart & savvy women, and learn and grow through our innovative educational, social, and leadership opportunities. 

In August, we proudly commemorated the 100th Anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, granting women suffrage in the United States. We are also approaching our own 100th Anniversary in 2022. We are grateful to the women who came before us who created the opportunities we enjoy; the alumnae community we love.  It is now our time to strengthen our beloved alumnae organization for our current and future alumnae sisters.  Your donation to the AADC Annual Appeal does just that.  The AADC Annual Appeal is not on behalf of NJC, DRC, Douglass or Rutgers.

With your GivingTuesday donation, you may also be recognized during our 100th anniversary year celebrations!  Those who contribute now and for the next two years will receive special recognition for their loyal and consistent support. Let us honor you!

Strong women lift each other up. Donate to the AADC Annual Appeal. It’s Our Time, Our Future.

Read below why some of your alumnae sisters are donating to the AADC this GivingTuesday.
