Senior Class Gift: Why Should I Give?
There are many reasons why you should consider contributing to the Senior Class Gift this year including:
To honor someone who has made your Haverford experience special. This year the Senior Class gift Committee is encouraging seniors to donate $20.14 in honor of someone in the Haverford community who made a difference in their experience.
You benefitted greatly from philanthropy during your time at Haverford. The Annual Fund provides support for virtually every aspect of life on Haverford’s campus. Whether it was the online journal you used to write your thesis or the equipment you used to play your sport, alumni support helped make your Haverford experience possible.
Tuition only actually covered about 70% of the cost of your Haverford education. Additionally, Haverford’s need-blind admissions policy would not be possible without generous financial support from alumni, parents, and friends.
Participation matters. The percentage of alumni who donate back to Haverford is used as an indication of alumni satisfaction in external rankings. Additionally, high levels of participation among alumni can be used to leverage additional support from philanthropic foundations for Haverford.
Every gift, no matter the size, makes a difference. Last year gifts under $150 amounted to $264,751.
It is what Haverfordians do! Last year 50% of Haverford alums made a gift to the Annual Fund and more than 70% of graduates from the Class of 2013 gave to their Senior Class Gift.
The Senior Class Gift is your opportunity to pay it forward and make sure current and future Haverfordians are afforded the same opportunities that you experienced during your time on campus.
