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 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 $20.22 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 $20.22 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 beautiful certificate with your name on it 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.
