Secaucus Public Education Foundation Launches Community for Alumni

Secaucus Public Education Foundation of Secaucus, New Jersey, Relies on Alumni Channel’s Online Alumni Community Solution to Connect with Alumni Across the World


CHERRY HILL, N.J. – Alumni Channel, a web provider of online alumni communities for schools and other non-profit organizations, announced today that the Secaucus Public Education Foundation of Secaucus, New Jersey, is relying on the company’s online community solution to develop closer relationships with its alumni.

Foundation board members Hardik Shah and Dora Marra, made a commitment to begin implementation of the Alumni Channel for their online alumni community.  Secaucus High School alumni represent an alliance of thousands of Secaucus HS graduates across the United States and worldwide. With a growing base of graduates, the foundation wanted to cultivate stronger bonds with and among alumni that would lay the foundation for fundraising in support of critical programs such as scholarships and an endowment.  The Foundation needed a technology solution that would enrich its existing Web site while reducing costs associated with direct mailings. This would enable the Foundation to provide an interactive, customized experience for each visitor, including opportunities to connect with each other, view school and class events, and eventually make online donations.

New group for former Champlain Valley Catholic school students

New group for former Catholic school students

Local Catholic school alumni gather to save history

PLATTSBURGH, NY — For years, the Champlain Valley was the home to multiple Catholic high schools.

Though Seton Catholic Central (formerly Mount Assumption Institute and St. John’s Academy) is the only one left, alumni of all the former institutions now have a home with the Champlain Valley Catholic Schools Alumni Association.

The association decided to start a website through alumni networking site the Alumni Channel, helping organize its efforts to reach out to the nearly 5,000 alumni from 19 different countries that attended Catholic high schools over the years in the Champlain Valley.

“I want it to be a site where any alumni of Catholic schools in the area can be involved in,” Recore said.

The website’s administrator, he said the site includes classmate lists and discussion groups that can be useful for reunion planning. He also wants to include pictures, records and other memorabilia from all the former high schools on the site.

“Creating this website with the use of the Alumni Channel, it gives us a place where historical and contact information is available,” said Don Moore, the board’s treasurer. “For the older schools, trying to maintain contact was difficult, but this site is easier because all alumni can help us.”
