Senior Class Gift
The Class of 2022 Smith Senior Gift
The Senior Gift Campaign is an awesome way for students to partner with alumni, parents, faculty and staff and give back to the college that has given us so much. To show our appreciation, we are committed to continuing the tradition of supporting the Annual Fund. Our goal is for 100% of our class to make a gift to the Annual Fund. We ask you to consider a gift of $20.22 to commemorate our graduation year. The minimum suggested gift is $5.00.
Remember, your participation is key to reaching our class goal
Alumni participation, which is the percentage of alumni who make a gift to Maryland Smith, is one factor in our U.S. News & World Report ranking. As alumni our gifts help increase the overall alumni participation rate. Reaching, and surpassing, our goal is crucial! A higher participation rate means a higher ranking, which increases the value of our diplomas. Smith seniors have demonstrated tremendous support in recent years, so let's keep that going!
By contributing a minimum of $5 to the Smith School senior class gift, Smith seniors are eligible to receive:
- A philanthropy honor cord to wear during commencement.
- A standing honor and special recognition during the Smith School commencement ceremony in May.
- Their name featured on the Smith School philanthropy honor rolls.
