Senior Class Legacy

Think beyond the amount. Every gift counts!

The Senior Class Legacy (SCL) is a long-standing tradition at Gustavus and has existed in a similar form dating back to the Class of 1900, who collected enough money to buy a geological collection for the geology department. Today the SCL supports the Gustavus Annual Fund and is an opportunity for graduating seniors to give back to Gustavus in a way that is meaningful to them and unique to their experience as a student. Not every student has the same Gustie experience, but the Gustauvs Annual Fund has supported every student, whether through scholarships, academic departments or extracurricular activities.

As graduating seniors, you're in a distinctive position. The College understands that most students do not have the financial capacity to give large contributions. We recognize also that givein comes in many forms, such as with your time and talents. Yet, every gift to the Gustavus Annual Fund, no matter the size, counts.

Now it's your turn to pay it forward. Your participation in the senior class legacy is truly important to the College. Your Senior Class Legacy contribution helps to:

  • Say "thank you" to the College and other donors for your singular Gustavus experience
  • Provide opportunities for future Gusties
  • Enhance the value of your degree
  • Suppor the immediate needs of the College.

There are three different ways for seniors to contribute to the Senior Class Legacy.

  1. A Sustained Giving Gift + Pledge
  2. A Sustained Giving Pledge
  3. A One-time Donation

More details about each of these ways will be available soon.
