2016 Senior Class Gift

What's the Senior Class Gift?

Through the SCG, seniors have the opportunity to make their first contribution to the Macalester Annual Fund and gain an understanding of how their Mac experiences have been shaped by the support of alumni.

Our Goal

The SCG goal is to reach 75 percent participation of seniors (we hope to beat 2015’s 67 percent record).

Why Give?

  • Give back to Mac to help bring the Mac experience to future generations
  • Senior Night at Surly: As a thank you, Omar Ansari ‘92 (founder/owner of Surly) will host SCG donors at Surly in April.
  • Honor a professor or staff member with your gift. Just write their name in the comment box on the online giving form. We’ll email them letting them know you honored them. (We ask that the gift be at least $5 per honoree).
  • Reaching 75 percent senior participation goal = unlocking $10,000 bonus from anonymous senior parents

How do I give and how much is expected?

You can make a gift online at macalester.edu/giving. We’re suggesting a gift of $10, but anything you can do will add up!
