Elon has launched a new young alumni giving program called IGNITE! Any young alum (Classes of 1998 to 2008) who makes a gift of any size to the university automatically becomes a member of IGNITE. So if you give to the Phoenix Club, Elon Fund, to scholarships or to an academic department, you are a member of IGNITE!

There are many ways to get involved with IGNITE. We hope you will join us!

Become a Life Entrepreneur

Life Entrepreneurs

Elon is sponsoring a series of events this fall to help alumni chart their futures. By applying the principles of entrepreneurship — identifying strengths, setting and meeting goals, and taking measured risks — you can gain the tools you need to achieve your personal and professional goals. Elon has partnered with Christopher Gergen, co-author of the innovative new book, Life Entrepreneurs: Ordinary People Creating Extraordinary Lives. In their book, Gergen and Gregg Vanourek explain how using the principles of entrepreneurship can lead to more fulfilling lives.

The following Life Entrepreneur events are a great opportunity to learn more about yourself and the values that guide your life. You can hear an overview of the book by Gergen or sign up for the more in- depth, four-part interactive Webinar. Sign up for these events today!
