Senior gift

Senior Gift is a 30-year old Skidmore tradition through which the Senior Class joins together in giving back to our College. The focus is on participation, not dollars, so there is no minimum donation and each Senior can also direct his/her own contribution to financial aid, Sustainable Skidmore, athletics, the Tang, or any academic department. In 2014, every single gift was matched dollar-for-dollar by Patrick McEvoy ’03.  

Thank to all of the Skidmore Seniors who participated this year! We had a record-breaking campaign with 590 donors, comprising 83% of our graduating class. Including the match from our alumni challenger, this year’s Senior Gift raised $8,850 to support programs, teams, and initiatives across the College campus.
