2014 Senior Campaign

What is the Senior Campaign?

The Senior Campaign is a student-driven program that educates seniors about The St. Olaf Fund, and the importance of giving back to their alma mater. It asks all seniors to honor their time on campus, and make an impact by pledging to give to the St. Olaf Fund in the first year after graduation (between June 1, 2014 - May 31, 2015).

Senior Campaign Kick-Off

The seniors-only kick-off event for the Senior Campaign was Tuesday, April 22, 2014, from 9-10 p.m in the Pause. Campaign committee members will table through April and May to receive pledges and gifts. You can also use your Ole Card to make a gift. In order to create a buzz around the campaign, a surprise is coming May 8. Watch for it!

What are the goals?

The campaign chairs, Will Raun and Taylor Lip Zovic have announced a goal of 500 participants.

Announcing a challenge

President Anderson and his wife, Priscilla, believe in us, in our campaign, and in the power of a St. Olaf education. They have offered, as a part of their annual giving to St. Olaf, to add to our class gift every time we reach one of four significant benchmarks: 200, 300, 400, and 500 senior gift participants (our goal).

Every pledge matters, no matter the amount!

Your gift, your way!

The St. Olaf Fund is a flexible, donor-centric approach to fundraising for current support. Annual gifts enhance the college's priorities and, if desired, may be directed to enrich particular programs, departments, or initiatives. You can also make your gift in honor of or in memory of a person or event.

Your participation is essential

Gifts to The St. Olaf Fund are used to support the annual operating expenses of the college-financial aid, faculty salaries, books, computers and lab equipment, and so much more. The percentage of alumni who donate annually is indicative of alumni satisfaction. Every gift increases our percentage, and helps show the world you valued your time on the Hill. If you make your pledge or gift by noon on May 14, you will be listed in the Commencement Program Honor Roll of Donors.
