Dues and Giving

Some alumni give back to Cornell by volunteering their time: meeting with Cornell applicants, leading alumni clubs and classes or participating in Cornell Cares Day activities worldwide. Others are Cornell Council members or University trustees. 

Cornell and the Class of 1964 also need our financial support, and many alumni give generously.

Class Dues: stay in the loop!

Please renew your ties to the class each year by supporting the Class of 1964 and paying your class dues. Your dues are the primary source of financial support for our class.

When you become a dues paying member, you are identifying yourself as a proud Cornellian who has a stake in the University's future.

Your class dues go a long way...

  • Supports Class of '64 newsletter and reunion mailings
  • Supports special class programs
  • Supports reunion planning and events
  • Supports this web site
  • Provides the Class of '64 with more space in the Cornell Magazine for our class columns
  • Assists the Class of '64 in staying in touch with you, so that you can find out what's happening with your classmates and Cornell.

What other benefits will I receive for paying my dues?

  • Full dues paying members receive a subscription to Cornell Alumni Magazine, bringing Cornell to your doorstep six times a year, keeping you up-to-date through the class column and articles on the latest campus happenings and alumni endeavors.
  • Paying your class dues also entitles you to these great rewards and discounts:
  • Strengthens your relationship with our classmates and the University

What is the cost of class dues?

Here are the various dues options:

  • $55 - Regular Class Dues, includes subscription to Cornell Alumni Magazine.
  • $65 - Couples Dues (both Class of '64), includes one subscription to Cornell Alumni Magazine.
  • $30 - Regular Dues Only, no subscription to Cornell Alumni Magazine.

You can pay your Class of 1964 dues through one of the following methods:

  1. Pay Online: Note: when you pay by credit card, you can optionally enroll in the annual Automatic Dues Renewal Program.
  2. Pay by check. Mail your check, payable to the Cornell Class of 1964, to: Cornell University, PO Box 37333, Boone, IA 50037-0333.

What time period does my dues payment cover?

A class "dues year" does not follow a calendar year. Instead, it is from July 1 to June 30 of the following year. So if you pay your dues in November, it only covers the time through June 30... not to the following November. Each year, class dues request mailings are sent in the spring. Paying them prior to July 1 will provide you with an entire year as a dues-paying member of the class.

How else can I support our class?

When you pay your class dues, you have three additional ways to support our class financially:

How else can I make a gift to the university?

In addition to giving through class dues, we encourage you to consider a separate gift to the Cornell Annual Fund. Your unrestricted dollars provide Cornell with the greatest degree of flexibility to direct the funds where they are needed most. You can give by mail, by phone, or online.

What is the difference between class dues and gifts?

Class dues are NOT gifts to Cornell itself and therefore do not count towards our class's Cornell Annual Fund giving total. Dues are paid by our classmates to support, specifically, the Class of 1964 in the ways outlined above. Most dues-paying members also choose to receive a subscription to Cornell Alumni Magazine.

A gift to the University is an investment in Cornell's future and does count toward our class's Cornell Annual Fund giving total. Your gift is dedicated to providing the University with either restricted or unrestricted support, based on your choice. Restricted gifts are 'earmarked' for a specific purpose (e.g, campus organizations, colleges, departments, activities, sports, fraternities/sororities, etc.). Unrestricted support is provided to allow the University autonomy in how they utilize your gift to maintain and strengthen the University as a whole.

Are my dues and gifts tax deductible?

The cost of your class dues and Cornell Alumni Magazine subscription ARE NOT tax-deductible.

Gifts provided to the University, both restricted and unrestricted, ARE tax deductible.
