Senior Class Gift Campaign

The Senior Campaign is a student–driven program that educates seniors about the St. Olaf Fund and the importance of philanthropy. A committee of senior students oversees the campaign — everything from creating its logo to planning events and recruiting outreach volunteers. Members of the committee encourage their classmates to honor their time on campus, and make a lasting impact through gifts to the St. Olaf Fund.

Annual gifts to the St. Olaf Fund enhance the college’s immediate priorities and, if desired, may be directed to enrich particular programs, departments, or initiatives. You can also make your gift in honor of or in memory of a person or event.

Your participation is essential

Gifts to The St. Olaf Fund support the annual operating expenses of the college-financial aid, faculty salaries, books, computers and lab equipment, and so much more. The percentage of alumni who give annually is indicative of alumni satisfaction. Every gift increases our percentage and helps show the world you valued your time on the Hill. Make an early gift to be listed in the Commencement Program Honor Roll of Donors.
