The Annual Fund Executive Committee (AFEC) is a key group of alumni leaders whose role is to work with the Annual Giving staff to help meet the fundraising goals set by the College.

Leading by Example

In addition to their own work as Class Agents, Annual Fund Executive Committee (AFEC) members work on identifying, recruiting, and stewarding class agents and Reunion Gift Committee members. The committee helps other alumni understand the needs of Middlebury College in order to secure consistent financial support on an annual basis.
