To encourage use of the Suffolk Center as a venue for Class Reunions, the Reunion Grant was established to assist Classes with the cost associated with the facility rental for a Reunion. Any graduating class, between the years of 1922 and 1990 of a public or private high school located in Suffolk/Nansemond County during that time but no longer is in existence, is encouraged to apply.
Grants provide up to 50% of the facility rental expenses at the Center and will not exceed $500 for a one day Reunion rental.
Grants monies will be used for facility rental only and cannot be used toward the nonrefundable deposit needed to book the Reunion at the Center. (The nonrefundable deposit will be required at the time of booking a date.) If awarded a grant, all funds will be applied to the final payment. All holiday weekends are excluded and do not qualify for grant assistance. Grants are based on the availability of funds.
All Reunion Grant applications will be reviewed by committee and responded to within 10 days.
Donations to the Reunion Grant Fund are encouraged. Ask your Class to please consider helping future Class Reunions enjoy the benefits of a Reunion at the Center by donating any excess class money to this fund. For questions contact, Susan Lawrence, Executive Director at 757-923-0003.
