The Davidson Senior Class Gift is not a fundraising campaign
for a bench, telescope or tree. Instead, it is an opportunity for the Class of
2016 to join generations of Davidsonians in showing their appreciation for the
college through a gift to The Fund for Davidson.
The Fund for Davidson raises unrestricted, current use
dollars that touch all aspects of campus life. Donations to The Fund go
directly back into the Davidson experience -- ensuring access and affordability
to a Davidson education through The Davidson Trust, allowing our Division I
athletes to excel in the classroom and on the field, providing undergraduate
research and internship opportunities, and budget relieving support for many
other campus programs. Gifts to The Fund for Davidson make an immediate impact
Last year, the Class of 2015 raised $7,813 and reached 91.8%
participation. In 2010, the Senior Class reached a record high 99.3%
participation. President Quillen has issued a special challenge to our class.
If we reach 85% participation, she will match every gift dollar for dollar up
to $15,000. If we reach 90% participation, she will contribute $5000 towards the Senior Class Gift. Let’s accept President Quillen’s challenge
and set new records!
While our senior year will be filled with theses, job
applications, and many “lasts,” this is a time to come together and celebrate
our senior year. We hope that you will reflect on your own Davidson experience
and remember the professors, friendships, and moments that made an impact on
you. The Senior Class Gift is just one of the many ways that we can celebrate
the Class of 2016 this year.
As always, it is a great day to be a Wildcat and a member of
the Class of 2016!
Please note: all
gifts made through the GiveCampus platform will be unrestricted. To designate
