What is the senior class gift drive?
The 2013 Senior Class Gift
This drive is an opportunity for the seniors to participate in a class project and leave a legacy at Goshen College. The 2013 Senior Class gift drive is now complete!
Goshen College graduating seniors have a tradition of giving to the College, beginning with the Class of 1915. For years college landmarks such as the stone bench next to the Adelphian Fountain as well as the cabin on the Elkhart River are the result of senior class energy and financial support. Last year, the class of 2013 contributed funds towards the SST Endowment, for a community garden and for a student club, PRISM.
How does the gift drive work?
Any size gift is appreciated! There are three ways to donate: designate a portion of your small group housing deposit (GC online), with cash or check or make an online gift.
All the numbers are in and 39.92 percent of the 2013 Seniors gave a total of $3,301.
Why would a financially strapped college student choose to donate to the senior class gift?
It’s time to think about the larger picture. This is your chance to start investing into the education of future Goshen College students. Your gift, no matter the size, helps build a legacy for your class that will benefit those to follow. The hope is that this is the first step in a lifetime of giving back. While you were a student you have been supported by alumni and friends of Goshen College. Now it is your turn to join the tradition of good stewardship. We hope all seniors will participate, no matter the amount, to ensure the success of the program and leave a legacy for future students. You can make a gift of any amount that is comfortable for you by cash, check, or credit card. If you have a small group housing deposit – you may apply a portion of it towards your gift.
Thanks for your support!
