Life can get hectic and sometimes pricey after graduation. That’s why gifts from young alumni are so special to the College.
Your gift means that you truly value the friends, mentors and knowledge you gained at Ursinus.
Gifts from our Graduates Of the Last Decade (GOLDs) are especially appreciated because, despite the challenges you face as you start careers and families, you choose to support the school that provided you with unlimited opportunities and was the place that you called home.
As a student at UC, your education and experiences were assisted in many ways by the Ursinus College Annual Fund. Your gift, no matter the size, supports the Annual Fund, which provides essential, unrestricted funding that touches every corner of the campus and impacts the “Ursinus Experience.”
Your gift—of any amount and to any area of need on campus—counts toward alumni participation. Our alumni participation rate is a factor in our ranking among national college benchmarking organizations, tools used by many prospective students when choosing a college. Therefore, gifts to Ursinus improve the education of current students, as well as the reputation of the college, which, in turn, makes your Ursinus degree (and you!) a more valuable commodity.
Gifts of $10, $20 or any higher amount from recent graduates all raise our participation rate equally. So, you can make a gift in an amount that is significant to you and fits within your budget. You could also choose to make a larger gift to qualify for the 1869 Society, the college’s leadership giving society.
Make your gift to the Ursinus College Annual Fund today.
