The Senior Class Gift is a long-standing tradition at SXU through which senior students join together to leave a legacy that will benefit future SXU students. As you approach commencement, it's time to take a look back and appreciate all the opportunities Saint Xavier provided you, opportunities made possible by the generosity of alumni donors. The Senior Class Gift is your chance to make a difference that will benefit future SXU students.
Please, add your name to the Senior Class Gift legacy list by making a gift of $20.20 in honor of your upcoming graduation.
Your gift can be designated to support student scholarships by donating to the Saint Xavier Fund, or to support your favorite athletic team, department, service trip program or other SXU student organizations. Make sure you enter your gift designation in the comments section of the Make Your Class Gift page.
Participation is so important!
Participating in the Senior Class Gift is about supporting the academic excellence that fosters student success at Saint Xavier University. No matter the size of your gift, the impact it makes on the educational experience of a future will be significant.

While we encourage seniors to make gifts of $20.20, what really matters is their participation. Imagine if every senior makes a donation of $20.20, your senior class will have raised over $20,000 for SXU colleges, departments, athletic teams, service trips and so much more. Through a sustained commitment of support we can make a difference in the lives of future Cougars. Remember, when you give you inspire others, who then in turn want to set an example as well.
