Make your gift now

Somewhere along the way, you have all received some type of support that has helped you on your college journey. Now is your chance to pay it forward.

We are asking all graduating seniors to make a symbolic “Senior Class Gift” of $20.16 to commemorate your graduation year. It might not seem like much, but all contributions make a huge difference in the lives of Southern students. All money raised goes directly back to students and supports student scholarships, programs and initiatives.

As a token of our appreciation, seniors who contribute a minimum of $20.16 to the campaign will receive:

  • A Student Philanthropy Council insulated cup that can be used at all “Phil Your Cup” events throughout campus all year long.
  • A Senior Class Gift honor cord to wear at commencement, acknowledging you as a campaign contributor.
  • Name recognition as a “Senior Class Gift” contributor in the Commencement Program.
  • A Special Invitation to an End of Year “Senior Class Gift” donor recognition celebration.
