What is the Senior Class Gift?

The Senior Class Gift is a gift of gratitude for relationships with faculty and students, the learning and personal growth that has taken place, and symbol of thanks to alumni and friends who annually support students though scholarship and the Geneva Fund.

The Senior Class Gift is a monetary gift of $20.18 to the Geneva Fund. The Geneva Fund supports all aspects of your experience at Geneva including academic programs, student activities, athletics and scholarships, not covered by tuition.

What happens when you give?

Bill Edgar, former Interim President and current trustee, and his brother John Edgar, a long-time Geneva trustee, have given a challenge to the class of 2017. The Edgar brothers have generously agreed to match the gifts of the class with an increasing level of match -the greater number of gifts given, the better the match.

The match begins, and is then retroactive to all gifts, when 50 seniors give a gift. The match increases by the following increments.

  • If 50-74 gifts are given – all gifts will be matched dollar for dollar (1:1).
  • If 75-99 gifts are given – all gifts will be matched 2:1.
  • If 100 – 124 gifts are given – all gifts will be matched 3:1.
  • If 125 gifts or more are given – all gifts will be matched 4:1.

**Gifts will be matched up to $5,000.

Additionally, Dr. and Mrs. Troup have offered to give $5 for every gift of $20 or more given by members of the class of 2018.

Those giving gifts of $20.18 or more will earn a gold and white Geneva Philanthropy Cord to wear at commencement. The Philanthropy Cord demonstrates your pride and gratitude for your Geneva experience and your willingness to give back and support the college.
