The Senior Class Gift is an important opportunity for Pomona seniors to give back to their Sagehen community and help to ensure the Pomona education experience for all students. Seniors who donate may direct their gift to an array of student resources or to the Annual Fund to support scholarships and need-blind admissions, academic programs and resources and student life opportunities. Giving to the Senior Class Gift is one way for seniors to make their mark on campus and support future Sagehens!
Senior Class Gift Myths
I'm already giving enough money to Pomona through tuition.
Even students paying full tuition only pay about two-thirds of the actual cost of a Pomona education. The rest is made up from income from the endowment and other grants, including the Senior Class Gift.
Pomona’s endowment is large enough to support its students.
The endowment consists mostly of restricted funds that have been allocated to support a particular area of need or a specific purpose. The Annual Fund generates approximately $5 million each year that help meet Pomona's immediate needs. Annual Fund gifts support academic instruction, student services, financial aid and student support.
One person’s participation doesn't matter.
All participation matters! It enhances Pomona's outstanding reputation and increases the value of your degree among peers and colleagues once you’ve graduated.
Participation is the most important part of our Senior Class Gift. We want this gift to come from as many of our classmates as possible. Whatever amount you can contribute will be a step toward our goal!
How much are you asking for?
A gift of any amount is appreciated.
Where will my gift be invested?
Donations to the Senior Class Gift are not invested and go directly to support student resources.
