The Graduating Class Gift Philanthropy Cord Program was launched in the 2015-2016 academic year and is one of the first nationally recognized programs of its kind. The program's objective is to further engage and educate the graduating class to help build the foundation of future volunteers and donors at the University, as well as to encourage them to be actively involved in civic engagement in their communities. This program is designed to encourage graduating seniors to complete a series of formal requirements (based on financial, educational, and service components) to earn a philanthropy cord.

It looks great on your résumé too!

Your class gift of $20.23 or more goes towards the Findlay Forward Scholarship Initiative for an incoming freshman with financial need. Learn more here:
