With the Senior Class Gift challenge, the entire graduating class celebrates their accomplishments, establishes a powerful legacy, and sets an example for future senior classes.

From freshman year onward, students have been the beneficiaries of philanthropic support from alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends of the University who believe in them and in the power of a Catholic University education. By contributing to the Senior Class Gift, seniors promote a philanthropic spirit across campus and honor the support they have received.

All gifts made by members of the senior class — no matter the amount — will count toward the Senior Class Gift campaign.

Will my gift really make a difference?

Absolutely! As a senior, you are counted as alumni by ranking agencies, which consider giving participation rates when ranking schools. So your gift — no matter the size — could raise Catholic University’s profile. And when combined with the gifts from your classmates, your class could make a huge impact!

I’m a senior. (Yay!) How can I make a gift?

We encourage you to give online now. If you prefer to make your gift in person, please contact your senior class gift staff liaison, Praise Carson, at 202-319-6616 or carsonp [at] cua.edu. You can also make a gift during many events throughout the year where the Student Philanthropy Council is present.

We look forward to seeing you graduate and welcoming you to The Catholic University of America Alumni Association!
