Admission & Annual Giving

Alumni Admission Program (VCAAP)

The Vassar College Alumni Admission Program (VCAAP) connects alum volunteers with various opportunities that support the work of Vassar’s Office of Admission. VCAAP volunteers help to increase the visibility of Vassar in their local communities and provide valuable points of contact for prospective students.

Class Agents and Fund Chairs

Become part of the team that works in partnership with the Annual Giving team throughout the year to promote class engagement and financial support for the College. Fund chairs and class agents work with each other to inspire gifts to the Vassar Fund, providing crucial support for financial aid, student life, sustainability, and much more.

Networking & Events

Multicultural and Affinity Groups

Strengthen alum communities that center shared experiences, activities, and identities, such as athletic teams, singing groups, LGBTQ+, ALANA organizations, veterans, and First Gen alums (among others).

Vassar Classes

Class Leaders plan reunions and mini-reunions, administer social media groups, and help the College stay in touch with and informed about members of their class communities. Roles vary, but include event planning, outreach (general and fundraising), writing class notes for the alum magazine, and more.

Vassar Clubs

With more than 25 groups in the US and across the globe, Vassar Clubs provide opportunities for alums—along with current students and their families—to build relationships across generations, nurture intellectual curiosity, support each other and the College community, and have fun while doing it! Thanks to Vassar Club volunteers, alums can get together, wherever they live, and continue to build lasting connections beyond the College’s gates.

Expertise & Mentoring

Speaking/Presenting at Vassar Events

Vassar Clubs, individual classes, and affinity groups all plan programs that feature alums and parent experts. These programs can be purely educational and/or take the form of discussion-based workshops that build skills and deepen relationships. If you are interested in volunteering to lead a discussion or skills-based workshop for Vassar community members, please contact

VassarNet Online Mentoring
