Senior Class Gift

During our time here, William & Mary has become our home, our family, and a place of learning and adventure. Now it is our time to give back so that our beloved College can continue to provide a high-caliber education for generations to come.

Follow Our Progress

As the Class of 2017 contributes to its Senior Class Gift, watch this progress bar grow — help us reach our goals by making your gift today!



Give Back; Pay Forward

Your gift can truly make a difference to our university by helping attract and retain professors, advancing student research opportunities, increasing scholarships support, and providing an extraordinary William & Mary experience. We, the Senior Class Gift Committee, hope that you choose to support the Class of 2017 in its goal of giving back so that William & Mary can continue to be a university For the Bold.


Swem Library

William & Mary is one of only eight U.S. institutions of higher education designated a “Public Ivy.” A Public Ivy is a state-assisted institution that offers a superior education at a cost far below that of Ivy League schools.


Founded in 1842, the William & Mary Alumni Association is the sixth oldest such group in the U.S.


William & Mary’s 12:1 student-faculty ratio is the lowest among the top public universities, a factor that helps strengthen W&M’s commitment to teaching. In fact, 84 percent of William & Mary’s classes have fewer than 40 students.

Samantha Slattery '17

I'm giving and encouraging my class members to give so together we can be bold and make history! The College has given me the guidance to grow tremendously both as a student and a member of society. By giving back, I hope to maintain our tradition of academic excellence; more so I am to allow other students to experience the same growth as I did.


Chris McClintock '17

I joined SCG exec because I want to show my senior class that giving back to the University doesn't have to be for wealthy alumni. You can donate, even in small amounts, to any department or club on campus; every little bit helps.


Melinda Heim '17

William & Mary has been my home away from home for the past four years. Giving to SCG is a way for me to say "thanks" to the College for all the amazing opportunities it has given me.


Kate Murphy '17

I joined SCG because I wanted to help seniors realize just how big of an impact giving just a little bit to William & Mary can really have on its future.  I’m giving back to the organizations that gave me so much during my time here because I want them to continue to have that impact on students like me.


Maria Schneider '17

I give back to William & Mary because I want every student for years to be able to appreciate our incredible campus and top-notch professors. I especially love to give back to the Impact Fund so any person who wants to attend the College can become a student here.
