Alumni Membership Dues

Your $15 annual membership dues to the East High School Alumni Foundation makes a HUGE difference in the lives of future EHS graduates, and keeps you connected to the Scarlet Community. Annual dues help support and strengthen the EHS Alumni Foundation and Alumni Scholarship Program. Each year Alumni Members are invited to the Annual Scarlet Celebration and other fun outings, like the Big E Dinner, to reconnect with old and new Scarlet graduates.

Stay connected and help us continue a long tradition of support and pride for EHS students and graduates. Purchase or renew your membership today!

Paying your $15 alumni dues makes you a member of the EHS Alumni Association! Whether you can attend this year’s Scarlet Celebration or not, please consider purchasing or renewing your alumni membership today. Your dues aids the Foundation in giving out as many scholarships as possible. It is used to pay the administrative costs of the Foundation, which allows all other donations to be put toward scholarships for graduating East seniors.


Any donations above the annual alumni membership dues ($15) also directly supports the Alumni Scholarship Program. Your membership dues and donations will be credited to your “class” fund if specified. Once your class fund has reached, $10,000, it will become endowed, meaning your class will award a $500 scholarship to an EHS senior on behalf of your class every year – forever! As your class fund continues to grow, so will the annual scholarship amount.
