About Us

OUR STORY

Alumni Nations was launched in 2014, with the goal of helping schools, school districts, and foundations energize and engage their alumni and other constituents, positioning schools as the foundation of strong neighborhoods, workforces and communities.  

We do this by helping schools to connect with alumni, alumni-parents, and the greater community to achieve a margin of excellence that cannot be provided solely through public funding.
