St. Francis College students smile at their graduation ceremony

Senior Class Gift

Class of 2018 Unite!

Contribute to the Senior Class Gift

Congratulations on getting this far! We know you have a number of things to cross off your checklist before you graduate. May we draw your attention to an important “must-do” SFC tradition? Each year we ask graduating seniors to make a contribution to the Senior Class Gift in support of The Fund for St. Francis College and future Terriers. Read the below FAQs to understand why this is so vital.

What is the Senior Class Gift?

  • A tradition at St. Francis College whereby all graduating seniors unite in the spirit of giving, leaving a legacy of generosity and support for the mission of the College.
  • An opportunity to go above and beyond to see to it that future generations of Terriers have even greater opportunities and experiences than you did.

Where does the money go?

  • Senior Class Gift contributions feed into The Fund for St. Francis, the institution’s fundamental resource for student need-based scholarships, academic program development, campus-wide technological enhancements, and support for the Library and Athletics.

Why does SFC need your personal support?

  • The percentage of Terriers who give every year affects SFC’s ranking in many college publications. This impacts the value of the St. Francis College degree while opening funding opportunities for SFC from the corporate and foundation world.
  • Contributions enable the College to maintain its reputation of affordability and remain competitive with peer schools, while not placing a greater burden on our students.
  • 98% of our student body receives some form of financial support which may include scholarships, grants, federal and/or state support. The Fund for St. Francis helps make that possible.
  • Bonus: A generous alumnus of the Class of 1968 will match every contribution made dollar-for dollar up to $5,000!

How much should I give?

There’s no set amount. It’s all up to you. Many will arrange a monthly recurring online gift ($5 or $10), so their gift can add up to a meaningful amount. Some will give a one-time gift of $20.17 in honor of the year. Some will give more or less than that. Your participation is what matters most!

Ways to give:
