Think of Senior Gift as a class-wide thank you to Amherst for the amazing academic opportunity, and all of the friendships, memories, and guidance over the last four years. It's because of Amherst's legacy of philanthropy that we're here today, and it's on us to carry that into the future, starting with the Senior Gift Campaign.
Seniors have the freedom to donate to one of eight different areas of the College: financial aid, student life, arts, athletics, academics, counseling and wellness, sustainability, or wherever Amherst needs it most. It does not matter how much you give, it just matters that you participate. This year, we are trying to break the record class participation number of 92%.
Each and every gift makes a difference, no matter the size. We hope you will join us in giving to a place that's given us so much. When you give, you help make Amherst possible.
