Q: What is Senior Gift?

Senior Gift is a long-standing tradition for members of the Senior Class in which they come together to make their first gift in support of one another and future Harvard students. The Harvard experience is not possible through tuition alone. Senior Gift contributions to the Harvard College Fund have an immediate impact on current students and directly benefit key areas of student life such as financial aid, advising, educational programs, the artsour librariesathletics, and House life.

Q: Where does the money from Senior Gift go? 

Senior Gift money does not go to the endowment! You can choose for your gift to support the Unrestricted Fund (which allows the College to support all of the areas above in addition to responding to unexpected needs and opportunities that arise throughout the year) or you can select to support Financial Aid directly.

Q: What does Senior Gift mean to us?

We give because we love this school and because we want to be a part of making it better. We donate because we value the opportunities we have received and because we recognize that Harvard has provided us with successes and failures worth remembering.

All of us share different reasons for participating in the Senior Gift effort, but we are united by a common optimism for the future.
