2020 Senior Class Gift Campaign

This campaign ends on July 31 at 11:59PM EDT

Congratulations on your graduation! Given the challenges you've faced this semester, you deserve to celebrate! Show your Husky pride by making a gift to support future BU students and we'll send YOU some special swag to show that you are a #Husky4Life. 

You may not realize it, but a lot of your BU experiences were available because alumni, parents and friends of the university cared enough to support your education. They funded scholarships, technology, professional experience grants, work spaces, research, and so much more.

HOW DOES THE SENIOR CLASS GIFT CAMPAIGN WORK?

  • Make a gift of $20.20 or more and receive a maroon and gold Philanthropy Cord to wear during commencement and a commemorative "Zoomsburg 2020" commemorative pin. 
  • Make a gift of $5.00 or more and receive a special "Zoomsburg 2020" commemorative pin. 
  • Become an Advocate (sign and and share the page) for a chance to win a BU spirit pack of swag.
  • Upload a Personal Plea video encouraging you classmates to give for another chance to win BU swag.. 

It's our way to say thank you for your commitment to #GiveBackBU and your way to show how passionate you are about supporting the Husky experience. Dr. Hanna will even recognize senior class gift donors during his commencement address. 

WHERE DOES MY DONATION GO?

This year, we are asking seniors to donate to keep Huskies at BU. Like you, underclassmen are facing huge challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  We are asking you to direct your donation to the Class of 2020 Textbook Scholarship which will help students purchases textbooks, clickers and other academic supplies starting in the Fall 2020 semester. As many students face unexpected financial hardships like the loss of employment, we anticipate an increase in requests for this funding.

HOW CAN I MAKE MY GIFT?

You can donate online anytime or mail a check to the BU Foundation.
BU Foundation, 50 E. Main St., 4th floor, Bloomsburg, PA 17815.

DOES MY $20.20 REALLY MAKE A DIFFERENCE?

Yes, yes, yes! Every gifts matters. When we add your gift to those of your classmates, we should raise over $10,000 to support your fellow students. 

WHERE DO I GET UPDATES?

Follow the Student Philanthropy Council on Twitter or Instagram @HuskiesGiveBack. We're also posting messages during finals week there that the Class of 2019 sent it for you.

I MADE MY GIFT, HOW DO I GET MY PHILANTHROPY CORD AND PIN?

The commemorative pin and Philanthropy Cords will be mailed to you. NOTE: The address you enter on the donation page MUST match the billing address for your credit/debit card. If you need your cord or pin mailed to a different address, just email sboucek@bloomufdn.org after you make your gift.

WHERE CAN I GET INFORMATION ON THE COMMENCEMENT CEREMONIES?

The best place for updates is: https://intranet.bloomu.edu/undergraduate-commencement
