Alumni and Parents Subcommittee
Established in 2010 as part of the leadership structure of the 10,000 Reasons campaign, the alumni and parents subcommittee and its communities are designed to connect, engage and activate alumni, parents and friends to serve as ambassadors and fundraisers in support of the annual fund. The purpose of the alumni and parents subcommittee and its communities is to provide alumni and parent engagement opportunities that lead to proactive demonstrations of loyalty and pride in Salem State, and that foster a tradition of giving back of time, talent and treasure.
Creating a robust fundraising program can feel like a daunting task, but it can be done successfully with the right tools and support in place.
LEADERSHIP: Joanne (O’Keefe) Ricciardiello ’68, co-chair

Student Philanthropy Council
The Student Philanthropy Council (SPC) is a group of student volunteers committed to educating classmates about the importance and impact of donor generosity. The council seeks to promote a culture of gratitude and to provide students the opportunity to give back to the Salem State community.
In addition to the general student outreach, the SPC also has two working subcommittees:
The senior class gift committee (SCGC) raises funds for a scholarship to be awarded to an incoming freshman the following year. The SCGC is responsible for publicizing the senior class gift campaign and co-sponsoring events with the Young Alumni Society, to introduce seniors to the alumni association and facilitate their alumni involvement.
SPC ambassadors are students that possess strong leadership, public speaking, and interpersonal skills. They serve as the student voice at university advancement events by interacting with variety of university constituents, including alumni, friends, trustees, donors, and university administrators.
