Answering the Call
Dear Bren Alumni,

Thank you--together we've invested in a stronger Bren community. 

At the end of May, having heard alumni calls for a better way to connect with each other, we answered with a Salesforce-powered solution called Bren Connect--and a call for your help to make it happen. Many of you heard that call and answered.

With generous gifts from over 200 alumni, we raised just over $11,000 to support Bren Connect. Alumni participation in the Bren Connect initiative represents 19% of the total alumni body contributing in about a month,  more than doubling average Bren alumni giving over the past 3 years. Congratulations, and thanks! 
While we did not meet our ambitious goal to raise $32,000 by June 30, we have enough to get started. This means we will implement Bren Connect in a phased approach--and it means that it is not too late to give if you have not already. 

Every day, Bren alumni answer the call to bring powerful solutions to the most complex environmental problems. The Bren School devotes itself daily to helping ensure that you and the students who follow you have the resources and support to continue answering this call.  With Bren Connect, you will have a powerful tool at your disposal 24/7 to deepen ties, build robust collaborations, and accomplish even more together.

Thank you again for helping keep Bren strong. Keep up the good work, and stay tuned as we work to get Bren Connected.

With appreciation,
