Our Deerfield experience was distinctively transformational for each of us. So each of our contributions to the 50th Reunion Gift reflect our individuality and our collective identity as the Class of ’66.

Whatever your financial circumstance, please take time to explore your options for creating a remarkable, customized gift.

Together the Class of 1966 can build an extraordinary 50th Reunion Gift.
