Senior Class Gift

Each year, the senior class rallies to advance Catholic University by generously contributing to
the Senior Class Gift. This year, the students on the Student Philanthropy Council ask the Class
of 2024 to give back to the departments and organizations on campus that made the greatest
impact on your time here as CUA students.
Class of 2024, the Student Philanthropy Council challenges you to have 50% or more of the class
give back to the annual fund of your choosing to support the future of our academic departments,
athletic teams, and student life organizations
By allowing the Class of 2024 the opportunity to specify where you want your donation to go,
we hope that you will find this donation more meaningful and personal. A donation to programs
here at CUA that influenced you will allow the University to offer even greater support for future
There are over 70 annual funds, giving the Class of 2024 many options to choose from and
spread your impact through many different areas of student life at CUA. This includes School,
Department, Athletics (by team or department), Scholarship, Student Affairs, Campus Ministry,
and many more!

A gift of any amount will help us reach our goal! Give $20.24 or more, and we would like to
recognize your donation with a cord to add to your commencement robe!
