Every year the graduating class comes together to raise funds for an area of Robert Morris University. The Class of 2018, accompanied by the Student Philanthropy Ambassadors (SPA) have chosen the Student Affairs Fund.
The class gift committee is made up of student philanthropists who are engaged in the RMU community. If you have questions about SPA or the class gift, please contact Hillary Moore at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is Class Gift?
The senior class gift is a student-run fundraising effort that encourages students to give back to help other students achieve their goals and build a strong sense of community on the RMU campus. The class gift also stands to promote philanthropy throughout the entire student body and inspire graduating seniors to leave a legacy in commemoration of their educational journey.
Will my gift really make a difference?
Absolutely! A donation of any size to the Class Gift fund will have a direct impact on the lives of countless RMU students. Whether it be supporting students with a financial need or creating a new space on campus for students to use for the next several decades, your gift makes all this possible. Your participation is the key to success for the University and is essential for bringing in major donations and keeping RMU as one of the top-rated schools in the nation.
Haven’t I already paid enough?
It is important to know that your tuition, room, and board only cover expenses associated with your personal education. All the funding that is used to support scholarship funds, create new spaces on campus, and host events is solely from donated funds. Without your support, RMU would not be able to continue to grow in becoming a place that truly changes lives.
What about after I graduate?
Making a contribution to the class gift is just the first step in joining the esteemed alumni community of Robert Morris University. Your relationship with RMU is one that will last a lifetime and your continued support will help provide undergraduate students with the same amazing experiences that past alumni have provided you. There is a strong tradition of philanthropy at RMU that allows new graduates to become a part of a supportive and rewarding community.
