Current seniors interested in philanthropy and fundraising work with University Advancement staff to create a year-long campaign focused on educating peers on annual giving and securing the first gift of their alumni career. The Senior Gift is a strong tradition at Sewanee, and as young alumni constitute a growing population of total alumni, it is a vital piece in our efforts to foster philanthropy and future support.

The Senior Leadership Board works hard to raise awareness of how charitable giving has impacted every aspect of their four years at Sewanee. Through peer-to-peer solicitations and events, the Senior Gift combines education and fun—all to promote and foster a life-long desire and habit in our newest alumni of giving back to Sewanee.
