Join the Class of 2018 and Give to Your Passions!

Through the Senior Class Gift, the Class of 2018 has the opportunity to leave a lasting legacy on campus. For decades, Emerson’s senior class has come together to give to special initiatives that fill a need within the Emerson community. This year’s gift is a campaign called Give to Your Passions, and we are encouraging seniors to give back to a fund that impacted their Emerson experience the most. From travel abroad funds, to athletics, scholarships, sustainability, academic departments, or student organizations we invite you to give to your passions!

About The Campaign

How will your gift make an impact?

Funds raised from the Senior Class Gift go toward improving the Emerson community by financially supporting the initiatives that have shaped our experience at Emerson. Many aspects of Emerson have benefitted from the Senior Class Gift Program while you were here!

It's now our time to do the same for the next generation. If you feel strongly that a certain organization has made a formative impact on your Emerson experience, please give directly to that program so that they can continue to influence future Emersonians. 

Senior Class Gift Myths

1. My participation doesn’t make a difference

The Senior Class Gift campaign is all about participation! All contributions make a difference. If each senior donated $5, the senior class gift campaign would raise $4,375! Every gift is a valuable one; it’s not about how much you give but how many people give.

2. Don’t I already pay tuition?

Most people do not know that tuition only covers 60-70% of the actual cost for a student to attend the College. Generous donations from alumni, parents, students, and faculty and staff help us to bridge the gap between an Emerson education and an Emerson experience.

3. Can I decide where my gift goes?

This year’s Senior Class gift campaign is all about supporting your passions, and the areas of Emerson that impacted you. There are over 300 Funds to choose from – we encourage you to designate your gift to an area that you care about deeply.
