Alumni Fund ‘thank you’ e-mail glitch peeves seniors

Seniors who donated to the Senior Class Gift Campaign got a big ‘thank you’ from the Yale Alumni Fund last week when an e-mail recognizing them for their donations neglected to mention their names.

One anonymous senior said that the glitch “really makes me never want to give again.” Lynn Andrewsen, the managing director of the Yale Alumni Fund, said a computer problem led to the error. The Yale Alumni Fund sent a second e-mail to the leadership donors to thank them and apologize.

“I really haven’t heard any negative feedback from the seniors,” Andrewsen said.
