March Madness 2017: Thank You Class of 1989

The Webb Fund March Madness tournament raises awareness about The Webb Fund, the annual giving campaign that provides institutional support and enhanced opportunities for current students on campus. Through class solidarity, alumni classes challenge one another to earn the most number of points by making gifts to The Webb Fund. Emphasizing the importance of alumni giving, The Webb Fund’s role on our School’s budget is powerful and enables the flexibility to meet emerging needs throughout the school year.
 
This year’s March Madness Champions are the Class of 1989, who embody Webb’s strong tradition of alumni giving. The tournament began March 1 and ended April 14, and included alumni events in Arizona, Denver, Los Angeles and San Diego. Alumni Council members, individual class agents, and event participants contacted classmates, shared social media posts, and reached out to show their Webb pride while earning points for their class. The Class of 1961 were strong contenders until the very last week of the tournament, when 1989’s participation and playoff round double-points takeover ensured the win. One hundred forty alumni participated in the tournament, making over 200 gifts and resulting in $91,898.57 in gifts and pledges.
 
Missed the Madness? There’s still time to make a Webb Fund gift that is meaningful to you before the June 30 deadline. Please visit webb.org/giving.
 
A hearty congratulations to the Class of 1989 and a big thank you to all of the alumni who participated in the tournament. Go Gauls!

  • SendGrid CEO Sameer Dholakia ’91: How a Good Guy Finishes First!

    Self-pride in Silicon Valley is every day, ordinary, embarrassingly understated even. Egomania, some say, a character requirement for success. Really, only the true tyrant can be hailed visionary there. And yet, swimming against such mythical miscalculation is Webb alumnus Sameer Dholakia ’91, CEO of SendGrid. He and the billion-dollar start-up he leads are both kind of a big deal—and for all the right reasons.  
     
    In the June issue of 5280—Denver’s Mile High Magazine, writer Spencer Campbell profiles the man and the company he leads; SendGrid is headquartered in Denver, but also has offices in Menlo Park.
