Once A Pioneer, Always A Pioneer

Thank you for visiting the 2022 Senior Class Gift crowdfunding page! The senior class gift is a proud, time-honored tradition at Utica University where members of the graduating class make a monetary gift to the University, in honor of all that the Utica community has given us for the past four years. 

“It’s all about giving back and paying it forward”

Alumni, faculty, staff and friends of the University gave to help make your education possible. Help ensure that future students have the same educational opportunities as you did. A gift of any size can help make that happen.

When you make a contribution to the 2022 Senior Class Gift, your voice matters! We want to know what YOU think the Senior Class Gift funds should go to. What do you want to see on campus? How do you want to leave your legacy on Utica? In the gift form, there will be a section where you can type in your nomination. When the campaign closes on March 31, 2022, we'll review all Class Gift votes and make the big announcement in April!

Did you know that every single student at Utica University has benefitted from donor generosity in some way? Donors support academic programs, emergency funding for students, and overall priorities that boost success for students every day.

Need more reasons?

  • To say “thank you” for your Utica University education and experience.
  • To be part of a proud tradition and philanthropy.
  • To allow future Pioneers to have the same opportunities through education.
  • Giving participation rates factor into the US News and World Reports rankings.
  • To enhance the value of your degree.
  • Because it feels good to give!

We’re encouraging every Utica senior to make a gift! It’s all about participation. Small gifts make a BIG difference. It doesn’t matter HOW MUCH you give, it matters that you HAVE given. Are you in?

Make a CLASS CHALLENGE gift of $22.00, in honor of your graduating year, you’ll be entered to win a HUGE UTICA SWAG BAG!

Make it recurring! We all have our Netflix or Spotify subscriptions that we are charged for monthly without a second thought. Giving back to Utica can be just as easy! Consider boosting your Class Gift even further by setting up a $5 monthly gift! If you set up a $5 monthly gift, you'll be entered to win a huge Utica swag bag plus a $25 Amazon gift card!
