How will you honor your favorite San Jose State graduate this spring? Consider contributing $20.12 or more to the 2012 Senior Gift fund.
The Senior Gift gives graduating students, along with their family and friends, the opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of graduates, while contributing to a program that will directly support current and future students.
Donors get to vote for one of three recipient organizations. This year’s choices include the SJSU Alumni Association Scholarship Program, the Educational Opportunity Program and the Student Emergency Fund.
Last year, 165 SJSU graduates, parents, and faculty and staff members gave a total of over $3,800. The money raised went to the Educational Opportunity Program because it received the most votes.
Honor someone special and vote for this year’s Senior Gift recipient. Your name and the names of those you honor will appear in May’s commencement program and the Donor Honor Roll.
