Since 1996, graduating seniors have made it a tradition to support the Class Gift Fund, one of Northeastern’s largest scholarship funds.
The Northeastern tradition is that graduates make a parting gift that leaves behind a lasting impact and gives other students the opportunity to succeed. This year we are asking for a gift of $20.18 to commemorate the Class of 2018. No matter the size of your contribution, the Class Gift is special because it is for students, from students.
The Class of 2017 raised an all-time high of more than $5,370 for student scholarships. We can definitely do better than that! Let's outshine last year's record and aim for $6,000! #RoadTo6k
Commemorate your graduation and support a special fund that is for students, from students. Leave your legacy as the largest giving graduating class.
