Alumni

Boettcher Scholars are dynamic, diverse, and service-oriented leaders who remain engaged in their communities long after graduation day. In addition to current Scholar programming, Boettcher maximizes our Scholars collective impact by helping them stay connected to the Foundation and get connected to one another.

Ways to Engage with Boettcher Alumni

For the past 25 years, Boettcher has supported and fostered Scholar and Alumni engagement opportunities that strengthen our community of leaders from the undergraduate years into the future.

Whether it is dedicating their Time, Talent, Treasure, or Ties, Boettcher Alumni engage with the Foundation in a variety of ways—helping us create a vibrant community connected across generations and committed to Boettcher’s mission.

If you have additional ideas or opportunities for Alumni involvement or programming, please let us know by emailing Floyd Pierce at floyd@boettcherfoundation.org.
