Class of 2017 Senior Class Gift Committee – Sign up Today!

Accepting seniors NOW! You are invited to join the 2017 Senior Class Gift Committee. Committee members play a vital role in giving back to the Tommie community by rallying classmates to leave a lasting legacy at St. Thomas. Sign up here!

The Senior Class Gift raises support for the Student Fund, which is directed each year to the greatest area of need for students – including scholarship aid, program support, and clubs and organizations, to name a few. It has the biggest impact on students where it is needed most!


As a committee member, you will have the opportunity to gain résumé-building fundraising experience and leadership skills, and to be recognized at commencement! Also, if you give a gift, you will receive a Senior Class Gift lapel pin to wear on your gown at graduation. All committee members who attend a minimum of two committee meetings and two events will get to sit in the first few rows at commencement. Won't your parents be proud to see you sitting in the front?!

Time Commitment:

  • Committee will meet once a month for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  • Attend at least one Senior Class Gift promotional event per semester.

Co-chair the committee!

Are you interested in building additional leadership skills? Do you want fundraising and philanthropy experience on your résumé? Then apply to be a co-chair of the Senior Class Gift committee!

Co-chairs are responsible for working closely with the Senior Class Gift Committee education chair, Taylor Kadrich ’17, and Assistant Director of Alumni Giving Ariene Willkom.

In addition to structuring the once-monthly meetings (six total), co-chairs organize fundraising events, marketing needs and volunteer needs to make the Senior Class Gift successful.

If you are interested, please sign up for the committee and indicate that you are interested in being a co-chair! Seniors must indicate their interest in co-chairing the committee by 5 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 3. Interested applicants will meet with Ariene Willkom and Taylor Kadrich and be selected by Oct. 6.
