What is the Senior Class Gift?

The Senior Class Gift is a long-standing Iona College tradition. It’s our way of not only celebrating our amazing experiences as students, but also giving back to ensure the same or better experiences for Gaels who will follow in our footsteps. We want to leave a strong legacy that demonstrates how generous our class is, and set the standard for future graduating classes to continue the tradition!

What do donations do?

When you donate, you can select an area of support that means the most to you, and has the greatest impact! You can support:

  • The Fund for Iona College ensures that the College has the flexibility to address its most urgent priorities and help students through improvements to teaching and learning facilities, technology upgrades, service experiences and even supplemental financial aid.
  • Campus Ministries will support students who need financial assistance to participate in a Mission Trip.
  • Campus Project will help to replace recently lost tree along the roadway on Summit Avenue, across from North Hall.

What’s in it for me?

Besides being part of an awesome collective Class of 2019 experience, and helping students coming behind us…donors of $20.19 or more will receive, in recognition, a special Class of 2019 lapel pin to wear on their graduation gown!

AND, if you donate an additional $7 (total of $27.19) you will also get a commemorative Class of 2019 t-shirt. Note: Class Gift t-shirt NOT available to purchase separately.
Deadline to donate to get the Class Gift t-shirt is April 11, 2019 at the Commencement Fair!

Class of 2019 pins will be available to pick up at the Commencement Fair on April 11, 2019.
T-shirts will be available for pick up shortly after the Commencement Fair on April 11, 2019. Donors will be notified of the exact date and time for t-shirt pick up via email.
