SPH Senior Class Gift


What is the SPH Senior Class Gift?

The SPH Senior Class Gift allows students to support other SPH students. It is calculated by the total amount of gifts made by members of the senior class and gifts made in their honor.

What does the SPH Senior Class Gift Support?

This year for the Class of 2017, the Senior Class Gift will support the Undergraduate Student Assistance Fund. This fund assists students though scholarship money that can be used for tuition, travel, research, books, and other fees.

How much should I give?

We encourage graduating students to give $20.17 in honor of their graduation year! By giving a gift of $50.17, you are a “Class Act.” With the Class Act donation, $30 will go towards the UWAA Membership fund, which will cover your first year of membership to the UW Alumni Association and $20.17 will support the SPH Class of 2017 Senior Class Gift. All gifts, of any size, are welcome.

How do I give?

Giving online is the easiest way to support the SPH Senior Class Gift . If you wish to pay by cash or check, please email for directions.

Will I be publicly recognized for my contribution?
