What is the Senior Gift?
The Senior Gift is a longstanding tradition dating back to the 1930’s in which seniors join together to give back to Amherst. It is an opportunity for the class of 2014 to make its first philanthropic mark on the college, and to join alumni, parents and friends in providing the essential financial support that Amherst needs.

This year's record-breaking goal: 92% participation!

It's all about participation!
All it takes is a $1 to get counted, and small gifts add up to a lot of good for Amherst.
Your gift supports many things including financial aid, internships, athletics, performing arts, and research opportunities for students and faculty. The suggested gift amount for seniors is $20.14, but, what we really care about is the percentage of seniors who participate.
