Leave Your Legacy
2024 Class Gift Campaign

What is the Class Gift Campaign?

The Class Gift Campaign is an opportunity for graduating students (undergraduate and graduate level) to come together to leave a legacy of support for current and future students. This campaign focuses on three vital pillars: student scholarships, the student emergency fund, and the campus food pantry.

Join in the spirit of generosity by giving $20.24— a symbolic gesture representing your graduating class year.

Make a gift and receive a philanthropy cord to proudly wear at commencement.

Together, your collective contributions will create a ripple effect of positive change throughout our campus community.

Thank you for participating and congratulations on your graduation!
