How Will You Honor Your Top Grad?

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 (Christina Olivas photo).

Consider contributing $20.13 or more to the 2013 Senior Gift fund. Through this annual campaign, the entire SJSU community including family, friends, faculty, staff, seniors and master’s candidates can honor this year’s graduates while investing in the future of San Jose State. Donors vote on the recipient of each year’s fund. The choices include the SJSU Alumni Association Scholarship Fund, the Educational Opportunity Program and the Student Emergency Fund. Last year, 237 individuals gave a total of over $8,900, which went to the Educational Opportunity Program. Should you choose to honor someone special, your name and the names of your honorees will appear in a keepsake Commencement booklet given to every graduate who attends the ceremony in Spartan Stadium May 25. You and your graduates will also be honored in the Donor Honor Roll. To learn more, contact Carolyn Canete, annual giving manager, at 408-924-1782. Give now.
