What is Senior Class Giving?

Senior Class Giving exists because, as students, we believe in Elon and we want to pay it forward for the students who will come after us!

We are here to educate our classmates on the impact private donations have made on our own Elon experience and to encourage them to participate in the Elon tradition of making their Senior Class Gift!

Why should I give?

By making a gift, you are investing in Elon’s future. Past gifts made it possible for you to have the extraordinary experience that Elon offers, and by making your gift, you keep those opportunities open to future students. Scholarship programs, new facilities and those iconic Elon Experiences – you have the opportunity to shape the future of Elon by making a gift today.

Most students don’t know that tuition covers about 80% of what we know as the Elon Experience. The University uses donations of all sizes to ensure all students receive the best possible education, in and out of the classroom.

What can I give to?

Anything you want! You can support this years Senior Class Cause, student scholarships, or make a thoughtful gift to the area of campus that made the most impact to you. Click here for a list of the top funds supported by the Senior Class.
