Senior Class Gift

Senior Class Gift

Welcome back, seniors!

Last year, the Class of 2015 set a new University record for Senior Class Gift participation. This year, our goal is to break that record and set our own by exceeding 61% participation!

Show your school spirit by making your gift of any size to any area of campus today.

Thank you for making the Villanova community even stronger through your generosity.

Why support the Senior Class Gift Program?
There are many reasons!

  • It Has Impacted You: The Senior Class Gift touches every area of campus. No matter your major or extracurricular activities, your time at Villanova was made better by previous seniors' gifts.

  • You Can Make a Difference: By making your gift, you have the special opportunity to ensure that future students can create their own unique Villanova experiences, just like you did.

  • You Can Show Your School Pride: Your participation shows your confidence in Villanova's mission and the education you received, setting a powerful example for underclassmen.

Senior Class Gift Committee

The Senior Class Gift is a sub-committee of Villanova's Advancement Ambassadors Program. Committee members are dedicated leaders who believe in the power of Villanovans helping Villanovans. This group of students will be at events and around campus encouraging the Class of 2016 to reach 61% Senior Class Gift participation, so look for them during the year!

Why I Support the Senior Class Gift 

Jacalyn Reed ‘15

"I was motivated to donate to Senior Class Gift because I wanted to give back to the university that has given me so much. As a young adult, it was important for me to find a philanthropic cause that I was passionate about, and one that I could support. The Senior Class Gift program was a great way for me to begin my own philanthropy by giving back to an area on campus. Being involved in this program as an Executive Committee member has further engaged me with my peers as well as the university. The Senior Class Gift is helping me to transition from student to alumna, and to remain connected in the Villanova community for years to come." - Jacalyn Reed ‘15

"I chose to sit on the Senior Class Gift Committee because I believe that the generous donations made by the students and alumni of Villanova truly benefit the entire student body. As a junior, I've seen so many positive changes happen because of these donations, and I wanted to help facilitate even more improvements on campus. Through Senior Class Gift Committee, I've gained another perspective of Villanova, and appreciate this community even more." - Elliot Williams ‘16
