Each year, the senior class rallies to advance Catholic University by generously contributing to the Senior Class Gift. This year, the students on the Senior Class Gift committee asks the Class of 2020 to create a legacy unlike any other: One entire class pooling its resources to financially support one student who may not otherwise be able to pursue a Catholic University education.

Class of 2020, your Senior Class Gift committee challenges you to raise $5,000 to fund the first year of the Class of 2020 Impact Scholarship.

The Class of 2020 seeks to make a life-changing impact

By funding the first year of an Impact Scholarship, the Class of 2020 would make a lasting and life-changing impact on a deserving student. If the class reaches its $5,000 goal before commencement, it will unlock a matching $15,000 gift, fully funding the Class of 2020 Impact Scholarship.

As soon as next year, an admitted student could receive a financial aid packet that includes the Class of 2020 Impact Scholarship. That student would receive $5,000 in funding for all four years of his or her Catholic University education. An entire class supporting one deserving student.

Who may contribute to the Senior Class Gift?

Anyone! Just use the giving link on this page to have your gift count towards the Senior Class Gift.

Every member of the Class of 2020 is encouraged to contribute at any amount. They may also ask their friends, family members, and professors to help them reach their funding goal of $5,000.

The Class of 2019 had 48% participation. The Class of 2020 seeks 50%!

In the name of friendly competition, this year's Senior Class Gift committee hopes their class can best last year's class.

More importantly, the committee wants every member of the Class of 2020 to be participate in the scholarship that will bear the class's name.

All gifts — no matter the size — could help the Class of 2020 reach its funding goal.
