Each senior is asked to make a gift to the University to ensure that future students enjoy their own unique experiences, just as the opportunities that shaped their time here. The Class of 2018 set a record with 68% participation and the Class of 2019 is challenged to reach 70% participation.

Why support the Senior Class Gift Program?

  • 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.
