Senior Class Gift
Just as the last seven classes have done, now the Class of 2013 has the opportunity to carry on the Senior Class Gift tradition and leave a lasting legacy at Rockhurst.
Did you realize that more than 1/3 of your education is funded by outside support? It’s true. Tuition and fees do not cover the entire cost of your education.
Each year, nearly 3,500 alumni, parents, faculty, staff and friends make financial contributions Rockhurst. Their generosity helps you receive the best education and experience possible.
The Class of 2013 marks the eighth year of senior giving and this is your chance to leave your legacy and show appreciation for the many opportunities offered, the valuable education received and the good times with friends.
Make your senior class gift today!
What does my gift support?
Gifts from the Class of 2013 will go to The Rockhurst Fund.
Simply put – The Rockhurst Fund supports everything – including YOU!
Think about it. You use multiple resources every day that are supported by private gifts. From premier academics to engaging student activities, including: innovative technology, well-respected professors, scholarships, library resources, athletics, student organizations and an all-around beautiful campus.
You’ve benefited from The Rockhurst Fund every year. So, what better place to give than to the fund that supports everything?
Participation counts – we need YOU!
Did you know that alumni participation is one of the factors in which Rockhurst University is ranked in places like U.S. News and World Report? It makes sense too – the stronger the affinity with Rockhurst, the higher we rank.
Remember: You’re not just supporting fellow Rockhurst students, you’re investing in the value of your own degree.
Help make the Senior Class Gift the best yet.
The goal is to raise the most dollars and have the highest participation to date – that’d be a legacy in which to be proud!
Your class can have a profound impact. Five gifts of $50 could purchase three academic books for the library. Twenty gifts of $25 could update a classroom with innovative technology. Even just 10 gifts of $10 could provide a new residence hall mattress. And we could all use a cat nap from time to time!
Whether you give $100, $50 or $10, you're doing your part to keep Rockhurst strong. Our gifts add up, so give what you can.
