Alumni Relations

Alumni Owned Businesses

Picture of IPFW Alumni

You've probably heard of "buy local" campaigns. Well, we're doing something similar: Buy Mastodon Alumni.

We want to know if you (a Mastodon alumni) own or operate a business. Please take a couple of minutes to COMPLETE THIS SHORT FORM and help us help you!

Please encourage any Mastodon alumni owned or operated businesses you know to take our survey so we can add them to our website if they are not already registered.

The Mastodon Alumni Association advertises and makes an effort to purchase supplies for events from as many alumni-owned businesses as possible. Please support these alumni-owned businesses throughout the year.
