What is Senior Class Giving?
Senior Class Giving exists because, as students, we believe in Elon and we want to pay it forward for the students who will come after us!
We are here to educate our classmates on the impact private donations have made on our own Elon experience and to encourage them to participate in the Elon tradition of making their Senior Class Gift!
Why should I give?
By making a gift, you are is an investing in Elon’s future. Past gifts made it possible for you to have the extraordinary experience that Elon offer, and by making your gift, you keep those opportunities open future students. New facilities, scholarship programs, those iconic Elon Experiences – you have the opportunity to shape the future of Elon by making a gift today.
Most students don’t know that tuition covers only about 80% of what we know as the Elon Experience. The University uses generous donations of all sizes to ensure all students receive the best possible education, in and out of the classroom.
Elon is in the middle of it’s most ambitious campaign to date, Elon LEADS, and every gift counts towards the goal of $250 million!
What can I give to?
Anything you want! Make a thoughtful gift to just about any fund on campus. Click here for a list of the top funds supported by the Class of 2021.
Think back on your time here — which area of Elon make the biggest impact on your life? What you believe the most in? What you believe needs more resources? Tell us, and that is where your gift will go!
