Senior Class Gift | 2015



History

Connecticut College seniors have a long history of contributing to the Annual Fund. The first Senior Class Gift was bestowed upon the college in 1982. The Senior Class Gift is all about participation.

Connecticut College thrives off of the generosity of alumni donors. Making a gift to the Annual Fund with your class is a way to commemorate your time at the College.

Your impact

Your gift to the College starts working right away through the Annual Fund, supporting funded internships, financial aid, faculty research, student life, and athletics, campus improvements, among many other important aspects of the Connecticut College experience.

There are more ways than ever to make a gift, including using your Camel Card, a credit or debit card, and in cash with a remit form.

You may make a one-time gift, or make a recurring gift as part of the new Granite Society, which is a great way to make a larger gift and break it into monthly, quarterly or annual installments.

You can also choose to give at a leadership level and be a member of the Synergy Society, with a gift of $100 gift this year. You can join the Granite Society and Synergy Society easily by making a leadership gift and splitting it up in monthly installments that are comfortable for you.
