Students cheering at Homecoming

Senior Class Gift

Can you believe it is already your senior year at St. Thomas? Join your fellow Tommie seniors in supporting the longstanding tradition of the Senior Class Gift.

As seniors, we understand that money can be tight. However, even gifts of $5 – when combined with support from your classmates – makes a difference. For decades, senior classes have kept up this tradition. Help the class of 2017 leave our legacy!

How can you make a gift?

It’s easy! Make your gift online using the form on this page. Make sure you select “Student Fund”! Every senior who makes a gift will receive a lapel pin to wear at commencement. Show your Tommie pride and join us in supporting the tradition of Tommies giving back!

What does the Senior Class Gift support?

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

The Tommie-Johnnie Challenge

For the FIRST TIME EVER, we are competing with the St. John’s senior class! Which school’s seniors will have a higher participation rate supporting their school? Help us show the Johnnies that Tommies support future Tommies and the common good!

Terms: Gifts of $5 or more count toward our participation total.

Why? We wanted to make sure that neither institution could “pad” its numbers with multiple gifts of a penny or a dollar, for example.

Timing: Gifts to St. Thomas made by seniors any time between July 1, 2016, and April 28, 2017, count! We’ll announce the winner of the #TommiesGiveBack Tommie-Johnnie Senior Class Gift Challenge two weeks before graduation!
