1. How do I pay?
You can download a dues card from this website and mail in a paper check to our bank. You can also pay with a credit card by using the Paypal link on this page.
2. Did I pay already?
Our financial year starts on July 1, so it's time to pay again for the year that ends after Reunions. You can tell if you have paid in past years by clicking on the Honor Roll links on this page. The best way to figure out if you have paid is by emailing the treasurer to ask (firstname.lastname@example.org). I only update the Honor Roll at the end of the year.
3. Why won't you people stop mailing me?
The university sets a schedule for correspondence, and for Classes that means two letters in the fall and then pre-Reunions information in the early spring. The class may send you paper mail after you pay your dues, because while you have paid your dues, we want to send you additional class information. No dues cards should be included in second mailings, but it takes time to get updates from banks and there is at least a month delay between turning in a mailing and it going out, so many people slip through the cracks.
4. Why are Class Dues different than Annual Giving?
Class Dues pay for your PAW subscription, letters to the class, class events and off-year Reunions. Annual Giving is for Princeton's unrestricted fund-raising. (http://giving.princeton.edu/)
5. I want to pay for two people at once but Paypal is only set up for $40. How do I do this?
You could pay twice on Paypal or send a larger check by mail and then email me at (email@example.com to make sure you get credited properly.
6. Is this tax-deductible?
Class Dues are tax-deductible. The IRS does not require receipts for donations under $250, but if you want or need a receipt email firstname.lastname@example.org and one will be created for you.
7. I'm living with another alum and we keep getting multiple PAWs. How do we receive only one?
Send an email to email@example.com and explain your situation. However, you will still need to pay your full Class Dues even if you are sharing a PAW. Sorry!
8. What does this money pay for anyways? I thought Princeton had tons of money?
Download the annual fiscal report on this page to see where the money goes. The vast majority of it pays for the PAW. If you don't contribute it means that some other class member has to pay for your PAW (which the university sends regardless) and that is one reason why dues are $40 and not $10.
