2021 Senior Class Gift

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

Are you as excited for graduation as we are? It’s almost hard to believe that we are finally graduating from Detroit Mercy and moving on to the next stage of our lives. Particularly after the last year with all the changes we and the world have gone through. Many things are different and will continue to be different.

One thing that isn’t different though is an opportunity for members of the Class of 2021 to give back something to the place that has prepared us to be successful in our chosen field and leaders in our community.

Every year the graduating senior class chooses something at the university to support through a fundraising effort. This year the Senior Class Gift committee has chosen to create a scholarship for students impacted by Covid-19.

Last March when the whole world seemed to shut down, many students faced tough financial times. Over 550 students applied for additional financial assistance from the university. Through several different sources, including donations to the student emergency funds, the university was able to help the majority of them with some level of additional support. Now, even a year later, the need still exists. The university is continuing to get requests for additional financial help from students.

We are asking you to join us with a gift of $10 or more. If just 100 graduating seniors gave just $10 each then we will be able to provide two scholarships to returning students who were impacted financially or medically by COVID-19 themselves or impacted by the death of a loved one from COVID-19. The more we raise, the more students we can help.

Every senior that gives by April 12th will be recognized at the Senior Send Off event held on April 22, 2021.
