Class of 2019 Senior Gift

WHAT IS SENIOR GIFT?

Senior Gift is a Caltech tradition that demonstrates the impact of philanthropy on the daily lives of Techers. Though most campus news stories focus on gifts in the millions of dollars, gifts of any amount make a huge difference. Here’s why:

  • The percentage of alumni who give back at any level affects our U.S. News and World Report ranking, increasing the value of a Caltech degree.
  • Alumni participation incentivizes larger corporations and foundations to invest in Caltech.
  • If every one of our living alumni worldwide gave just $20, it would be enough to pay for tuition, room, and board for 7 current Caltech students.

Because participation is so important, Senior Gift is more about promoting the act of giving than it is about raising a huge sum. Seniors typically give $20.1X in honor of their class year. Some give $5 or $10, a few give $50 or $100, and the minimum amount is just $1.

SENIOR GIFT 2019

This year's class achieved 32% participation, surpassing the participation rates from the 2015 and 2016 senior gift. They raised $3,120 with help from Professor Tom Soifer, who generously matched the seniors' gifts.

Lloyd house won the house competition and received a dinner with Tom Mannion.
