Senior Class Gift 2019

This campaign ended on June 30, 2019, but you can still make a gift to Davidson College by clicking here!

The senior class gift is meant to continue the tradition of senior classes paying it forward and enriching the experiences of future students. As our time here comes to a close and we look back at the years we have spent here, we believe everyone can find moments of joy and life changing experiences. Throughout the school year, this campaign is encouraging every student to make a contribution in honor of those moments and experiences.

There are so many different reasons to give to Davidson. What makes the senior class gift special is that it is a collective effort that goes directly to support The Fund for Davidson, which raises expendable dollars, meaning they will go into effect immediately. The five buckets of The Fund for Davidson are: Access and Affordability (The Davidson Trust); Experiential Learning (internships, fellowships, research); Athletics (general support and each Division I team); Visual, Literary and Performing Arts (including WDAV); and other “unrestricted support” (allowing Davidson to put your gift towards the greatest need). When you make a donation to the senior class gift, you can choose which of these areas you'd like to support and you can even make your gift in honor of any person, place or experience that has impacted your time at Davidson!

Our goal is to garner support from at least 85% of our class this year. In addition, we hope that at least 50% of our class will make a commitment to give next year, in support of our friends and fellow Wildcats still on campus!

By making a donation and a pledge, you are joining a network of alumni who value their Davidson education and believe in the college's values, and who have pledged to support the transformative liberal arts experience Davidson provides. Historically, Davidson has one of the very best alumni participation rates in the country, and your gift, no matter the size, helps maintain that tradition.
