I am a graduating senior at Elon. My parent or family member wants to make a gift in my honor. Is that possible?
Elon is happy to provide options for family members who want to recognize their graduating seniors! However, this opportunity is meant to highlight the commitment of seniors who receive an excellent education at Elon and choose to pay that forward by making their own gift. For this reason, seniors themselves must make a personal gift in order to receive a brick. Gifts made on behalf of seniors cannot be applied to the bricks initiative.
