Class Gift Campaign

Due to the proximity to Commencement, we can no longer process donations to the Class Gift Campaign.

 

About the Class Gift Campaign

Congratulations graduates! Each year graduating students (undergraduate and graduate level) give to the Class Gift Campaign to make a difference in the lives of fellow students who will continue to study and pursue their degrees at FDU. You can choose from three different areas to support on the Metropolitan or Florham campuses with your class gift. Make a gift in the amount of your year of graduation ($20.22) and receive a philanthropy cord to wear at Commencement, or as a reminder of the legacy you are leaving behind at your alma mater. Philanthropy cords will be distributed at the Alumni Relations table at Grad Salute on the Florham and Metropolitan campuses.

What do you want to support?

You can choose from three different areas to support on the Metropolitan or Florham campuses with your class gift. Class gift projects for each campus include:

    • Student Scholarship - a scholarship from the graduating class to a student from the Metropolitan and Florham campus
    • Student Emergency Fund - financial assistance for the unexpected things that come up, and you need just a little help to get by
    • Campus Food Pantry - provides access to non-perishables and essentials to students in need

Your Gift, Your Impact

Your gift of $20.22 will not only benefit your fellow students at FDU, but your gift will help to boost FDU's rankings. National organizations that review and rank colleges and universities factor in the number of alumni (that's you) who support their alma mater, so the more members of the Class of 2022 who support the Class Gift Campaign, the higher FDU will go.

Philanthropy Cord

Philanthropy Cords

Donate at least $20.22 to the Class Gift Campaign, and as a graduate of the Class of 2022 you will receive a philanthropy cord to wear at Commencement, or to keep as a reminder of your commitment to giving back to your alma mater. Philanthropy cords will be distributed at Grad Salute on the Florham and Metropolitan Campuses.

Pick-up of Philanthropy Cords

If you donate at least $20.22 to the Class Gift prior to Grad Salute, you will be able to pick up your philanthropy cord at Grad Salute on the Florham or Metropolitan campus. Making your gift prior to Grad Salute is encouraged and appreciated to reduce the amount of time waiting in line to make a gift and pick-up your cord on the day of Grad Salute.
