2020 Class & Family Gift Challenge

This campaign ended on August 01, 2020, but you can still make a gift to Utica College by clicking here!

What is the Senior Class Gift & Family Challenge?

One of UC's most time-honored traditions, the Senior Class Gift allows each graduating class to have a significant impact on future students and their success. 

This year, the UC Class of 2020 is challenging seniors and their families to support a Student Emergency Fund. Designed to help students during financial hardships, the Student Emergency Fund ensures that no student has to choose between their education and an emergency. By supporting the Fund, seniors and their families can make a meaningful difference in lives of future Pioneers faced with challenging circumstances. 

What are our Goals?

Class participation:  We want to encourage all graduating seniors to make gifts of any size to the College.  Honoring our 2020 graduation year, the first 120 gifts of $20.20 or more will be matched  dollar for dollar by a Trustee of the College, thus making your gift have double the impact.. 

To make even easier gifts of $20.20 or more can be spread out over 12 months at 1.68 or more per month. Click the "make my gift recurring" button.

Parent Participation:  Parents can honor their students by making a gift of any size and including their student's name as tribute. We encourage parents to give a minimum of $20.20 to complete the Family Challenge.


Utica College Class of 2020 families have a unique opportunity to set the bar for future class years by participating in this inaugural Senior Family Challenge!

  • Remember: It doesn't matter how much you can give, it matters THAT you have given! 
  • If you prefer to support a different program with your Senior Class Gift, please know that you will still be counted in the challenge.
  • Help out even more by clicking the "advocate" tab and helping us by sharing our campaign.
  • Leadership gifts at the $1,000 giving level and greater will enjoy special Commencement benefits.
