Leave a Legacy at Whitman!

Each year, Whitman graduating students can contribute to the Class Act campaign to signify the value they place on their experience at Whitman and Syracuse University and to set the stage for continued engagement and support of their alma mater.

The collective impact of the suggested $20.18 gift is significant. Tuition and fees cover only 85 percent of the real cost of an SU degree. Class Act gifts help bridge the gap. Graduating student giving supports cutting-edge programs, modern facilities, scholarships (75 percent of SU students receive some sort of financial assistance) and other advantages necessary for a first-class education.

Last year, 50 percent of Whitman’s graduates donated to their class gift. That was the third straight record-breaking year for Whitman and our third consecutive year topping all other schools and colleges on campus. We want to make it four years in a row in 2018!

Those Whitman graduates who make their Class Act 2018 gift will receive invitations to fun donor events on campus, a giving cord to wear at commencement and recognition on the Class Act “Wall of Fame” on the first floor of Whitman.

Gifts, including matching tributes, can be made online, and donors can direct their gift to one of several designations, including a Whitman academic department, the Whitman Dean’s Fund or one of 22 other areas on campus.

Whether you will wear a mortarboard next May or received your Whitman diploma a decade ago, please consider making a Class Act 2018 donation today. Your support will help progress Whitman’s mission to prepare future business leaders to do great things in the global marketplace.
