Reunion Giving

Homecoming 2020

Join your class to compete for the 2021 Bulldog Cup!

Celebrate your milestone occasion by participating in the Bulldog Cup Reunion Giving Challenge, a giving opportunity that offers you and your classmates an exciting way to come together in support of SSA.

Make a Reunion Gift Now

When you make your gift to the Blue & Gold Fund during your reunion year, you join your peers in rising to the challenge of increasing funding for SSA’s highest priorities, including ongoing investments in faculty, financial assistance programs and new learning opportunities – the core of the Shady Side experience – that could not be funded through tuition alone. 

Join your classmates in honor of your reunion year and make a gift today to impact the current and future SSA student experience. Gifts of any size make a difference and go towards the Blue & Gold Fund.  Making a gift is a great way to show that you are proud to be an SSA Bulldog!

Every gift adds up for greater collective impact.  Together, you will help SSA continue to deliver a transformative educational experience that allows our students to go on to lead remarkable lives.

*Please note that any class that wishes to raise restricted funds will still be included in Blue & Gold Fund solicitations throughout the year.  Gifts and pledges made from July 1, 2021 through SSA Bulldog Day, April 21, 2022 will be counted toward class participation numbers. 

For more information or to join the Reunion Giving Committee for your class, please contact Alicia Barnes at or 412-968-3017.
