Not So Frugal Alumni

So last night we attended an alumni event. It deals mostly with athletics and the "scholarship fund". We or rather dh paid $45 to attend this event on top of the $$ we spend on football season tickets and the parking that goes along with it. Before anyone goes all cray cray dh works a part time job to pay for his football fix. We do not go into debt for this in any way shape or form. 

I always feel a little odd at these events because we give at the most basic levels and of course there are many folks who give thousands. I hope they don't go into debt to do this.   

I know that universities need money to fund scholarships and all kinds of things but it gets old getting phone calls and emails always needing more. 

Do any of you contribute to your alma maters ?  Have you considered stopping??
