The Tulane Club of Kansas City is an active group of local alumni who organize social, educational, and cultural activities for Tulane alumni in the KC area. The club is a constituent member of the Tulane Alumni Association (TAA). Founded in 1898, TAA provides a forum for meaningful involvement and interaction among the university’s 105,000 alumni, its students, and university leaders.
With more than 350 local Tulane alumni, the club has something for all alums in the area. Our club is very active -- our 2002 crawfish boil drew almost 200 alums & friends!! In recent years our events have included 2nd Wed. monthly luncheons with an alumni/student speaker, crawfish boils, an art event with Newcomb grad Lynda Benglis, speakers from Tulane (President Scott Cowen & the Dean of the School of Architecture), and happy hours. We also support our local students at Tulane through Hometown Parties for incoming freshmen, care packages sent to freshmen, and a student skating party during the winter break. Our club is one of the only clubs to publish a quarterly newsletter highlighting local alums and students and announcing upcoming events.
We look forward to getting to know you. Activities of the club are planned and organized by local alumni with the assistance of the Tulane Office of Alumni Affairs. Therefore, your ideas and your help are always welcome. Please contact Molly Dwyer at email@example.com if you would like to get involved.
This page is an online bulletin board for local alumni to share information and ideas with each other. For example, if you are looking for a roommate, a new job, or new employee, or if you want to announce that a New Orleans band is coming to town, here's where to make your announcement.
Since this is a free service, commercial announcements will not be accepted. Please limit posting to 100 words.

The Albert H. “Sonny” Small, Jr. (A&S’79) Regional Challenge Grant for Tulane Alumni Residing in the DC, Virginia, Maryland Area
Tulane alumnus Albert H. “Sonny” Small, Jr. has announced a unique opportunity for alumni in the D.C., Virginia and Maryland area making a gift to the Tulane University Rebuilding Fund. Mr. Small will match all donations, dollar for dollar*, made to the Tulane University Rebuilding Fund from alumni donors in D.C., Virginia and Maryland and those who have not yet made a gift to the Tulane Rebuilding Fund - up to $500,000 total.
This Challenge allows these alumni to give to Tulane University knowing that the amount they give will be doubled, making the impact of their individual gifts even greater. The collective impact of new gifts from alumni and matching funds from this challenge grant will provide essential support for Tulane during its rebuilding process.
Donors from these areas need only make their gift to the Rebuilding Fund. Qualifying gifts will automatically be applied to the Albert H. “Sonny” Small, Jr. Challenge Grant.
*up to $10,000 per household
This unique award was established six years ago by Timothy Sykes (Tulane College ’03) to recognize and nurture talented individuals whose abilities and accomplishments may not be in traditional areas of endeavor. There are many ways to be “successful” in today's society and this award acknowledges young people with unique interests and passions. This does not preclude from consideration those with significant demonstrated success in the classroom or on the playing field - it simply seeks to broaden the definition of accomplishment in a university environment.
A candidate may self-nominate or be nominated by another member of the Tulane community by means of a statement (minimum 2 pages) that describes the individual’s talent/potential and supports that description with a listing of his/her related accomplishments or an example of the applicant’s work. Nominations are open to any member of the Tulane community – student, faculty, staff or young alumni. Applications for the award will be reviewed by a committee appointed by President Cowen.
Completed nominations are due by April 17, 2009 and may be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by mailing them to Tulane University Office of Development, 6823 St. Charles Avenue, New Orleans, LA 70118. Please call 504.314.7633 with any questions.
