PWU-PWC Alumni Foundation of Davao, Inc.
There is a proposal coming from the PWU-PWC Alumni of Davao Foundation, Inc. officers 2013-2015 to hold Alumni Homecoming and Reunion biennially or once every two years.
The scheme will be -- in addition to classes celebrating their 25th, 30th, 35th.40th and 50th jubilee, host jubilarians shall include classes celebrating their 24th, 29th, 34th, 39th, 44th and 49th jubilee. The class celebrating its 24th year is considered Silver Jubilarians together with the class celebrating its 25th year. Similarly, the class celebrating its 49th year is considered Golden Jubilarians together with the class celebrating its 50th year. The same goes with the other additional classes. These additional classes are celebrating their jubilee year in advance. There will be 12 jubilarian classes for every activity.
Certain factors were considered such as the following:
A. Limited number of Jubilarians
Student population from the 1950s to 1990s consist of only one class of 40 students to two or three classes with a total of less than 80 to 100 students. Unlike other schools with hundreds or thousands of jubilarians every year, the PWC jubilarians can be as little as 40 per year. The number is even smaller when it comes to active jubilarians who are able to attend and support the activity. This limited number of jubilarians result in serious hard work from both the jubilarians and the PWC Alumni Office to achieve the objectives of the activity, which includes the production of the reunion night program and fundraising objectives.
B. Donor Fatigue
With an annual activity coupled with a limited number of jubilarians, many of the regular sponsors and donors of the PWC Alumni Homecoming and Reunion are being tapped every year and have experienced donor fatigue. These supporters include companies and individuals who are willing to assist financially but since they are tapped year after year by PWC jubilarians as well as other schools, they are faced with financial constraints and have become slow in their assistance.
With the PWC Alumni Homecoming and Reunion being held only once every two years and with more celebrating jubilarians at work, there is an increased chance of getting more financial support from prospective sponsors and donors.
A biennial homecoming activity will result in more jubilarians working together towards the same objectives, less pressure for each jubilarians class in terms of work and funds raised, increased chances of achieving financial support from prospective sponsors and donors, more time for preparations and for hosting several activities in line with the set objectives, and higher attendance of alumni group which translates into a bigger event with a higher impact.
In the light that we want to get each batch’s consensus, a referendum will be conducted. Your reply will surely help us in planning what is best for the success of our homecoming and reunion.
