The Senior Class Giving Campaign exists to educate seniors on the crucial need for private donations to Elon while also encouraging them to begin their support of the university. This happens by way of the student members of the Senior Class Giving Committee who reach out to fellow classmates to encourage them to give back to whichever department, program or organization had the biggest impact on their life at Elon.
Think about your time at Elon.
Your winter term or semester studying abroad, catching up with President Lambert at college coffee, undergraduate research, the Turkey Trot, studying in a private room in Belk…...Got it?
Now take that experience and think about it being 20% less of what it was. Your tuition only covers 80% of the cost of your education. That solely includes the cost of maintaining Elon as is. No new lab equipment, no renovation to sports fields, no increase in scholarships, and no new strives in sustainability. Nothing.
Just as college tuition is an investment in yourself, your gift is an investment in Elon. Without donations in addition to tuition, current students wouldn’t have the Numen Lumen Pavilion, Hunt Softball Park or the Watson Odyssey Scholarship program. Future classes would not have the Inman Admissions Welcome Center and other new projects currently in the works. Private donations also support and sustain the five Elon Experiences, helping prepare you and your classmates to be lifelong learners and global citizens.
Make a thoughtful gift to, well, just about anything. You have the ability to choose from hundreds of designations around campus. Anything from student scholarships, athletics, specific majors, departments or even Greek life. Simply choose where your gift could make the greatest difference and CLICK HERE TO MAKE YOUR GIFT NOW!

Two dozen seniors are sharing with classmates how gifts to Elon University can help future students grow from the same experiences they have discovered through their studies.
Forty-three percent of Elon University students in the Class of 2014 - an all-time high participation rate for the Senior Class Giving Campaign - contributed more than $52,000 this year to support areas of campus close to their hearts.
The annual program raises awareness among students that donors help cover many expenses that come with studying at Elon University.
