An anonymous “parent couple” has matched the donations made to Georgetown by this year’s graduating seniors, according to an email sent by Class of 2011 fund co-chairs Kirsten Hardy (SFS’11) and Quinn Portfolio (COL’11).
“During yesterday’s convocation ceremony, an anonymous parent couple was deeply moved by the commitment to Georgetown that so many of us have demonstrated this year. Inspired by our dedication, they hope to encourage us to stay connected and committed to the university and each other, today and throughout our lives,” wrote Hardy and Portfolio in an email sent today to graduating seniors.
The co-chairs wrote that the Class of 2011 had managed to raise $58,446 from 1,065 seniors prior to yesterday’s commencement ceremony, noting that the donation stood as an all-time record for a graduating class.
The donation by the anonymous couple raises the total gift made by the recently-graduated class to $116,892.
