Class of 2024 Senior Class Gift

We are excited to launch the class gift campaign for the Class of 2024. You may give any amount, to any fund that is meaningful to you to be considered a student donor and gain access to our two student donor exclusive events: the Paint n' Sip Brunch and Champagne Toast to the Class of 2024.

Although any gift amount qualifies you as a donor, members of the Class of 2024 who donate $24 to commemorate your class year will also receive a donor medal to wear at Commencement and a T-shirt to wear at the 2.024 Grad Dash! Make your $24 gift by April 17 to guarantee your medal and T-shirt.
