OUR NEWEST CHALLENGE:
1,000 SENIORS = $75,000 for FINANCIAL AID!
After hitting our 50% by the 5th challenge, the class has been presented with another challenge benefitting Financial Aid -- if we hit 1,000 total senior gifts by May 3rd, we will get $75,000 DONATED TOWARDS FINANCIAL AID by three classmates from the Class of 1987! And drumroll...
That's $75,000 for Financial Aid. That's huge. Thanks to every single person who donated!
Q: What is Senior Gift?
Senior Gift is an opportunity for the Class of 2017 to pay it forward with a first gift that demonstrates our belief in benefitting current and future students at the College. The Harvard experience would not be possible through tuition alone. Even if you are only able to give $10, your gift will have an immediate impact on the experience of current students and directly benefit key areas such as financial aid, advising, educational programs, the arts, our libraries, athletics and House life.
Q: Where does the money from Senior Gift go?
Senior Gift money does not go to the endowment! You can choose for your gift to support the Unrestricted Fund (which allows the College to support all of the areas above in addition to responding to unexpected needs and opportunities that arise throughout the year) or you can select to support Financial Aid directly.
An example of where the Unrestricted Fund goes to:

Q: What does Senior Gift mean to us?
We give because we love this school and because we want to be a part of making it better. We donate because we value the opportunities we have received and because we recognize that Harvard has provided us with successes and failures worth remembering.
All of us share different reasons for participating in the Senior Gift effort, but we are united by a common optimism for the future.
Q: How can I get involved?
We'd love to have your support! Please contact us for information.
