What is the Senior Class Gift?
The Senior Class Gift is an opportunity for graduating students to give back to the programs, departments, scholarships, and more that played a key role during their time at UW-Eau Claire. We know that the end of your time at UW-Eau Claire is not what you expected to be, and we hope that supporting future Blugolds will be one of the many ways that you will choose to celebrate your time at UW-Eau Claire.
We invite you to make a senior class gift of $20.21 in honor of your graduation year to support a bright future for the next generation of Blugolds. We also have the opportunity for you to honor a favorite faculty or staff member with a “Blugold Tribute” in appreciation for the impact they had on you.
You can choose to donate to your academic department, give back to a scholarship that you received, or support a particular initiative on campus. Or, you can direct your gift to the Excellence Fund, which supports the areas of greatest need at the university.
What will I receive for my gift?
As a thank you from the UW-Eau Claire Foundation for your $20.21 gift, you’ll receive a Blugold spirit cord, which are blue and gold cords to wear with graduation regalia or to display somewhere meaningful so you’ll always be reminded of your time at UW-Eau Claire.
We’ll also deliver a copy of "Building Excellence," a beautiful hardbound book that chronicles the history of UW-Eau Claire to one faculty or staff member you choose to honor as a “Blugold Tribute” with a note that includes your name. This is an opportunity to say thank you to an individual on campus who has made an impact on you.
