  • What's a Senior Class Gift

    Every gift makes an impact, no matter the size

    York College seniors have the opportunity to help their fellow students and begin their philanthropic legacy. From scholarship dollars to funding for athletics or your academic department, your Senior Class Gift goes towards making York College everything it is for generations to come. Making your Senior Class Gift is a great way to show your gratitude, helps mold the YCP experience for future students, and ensures the Class of 2019 will leave their mark on YCP!

    The Senior Class Gift isn't just about fundraising. It's about preserving the traditions that make the York College experience unique. Because of the generous support from our alumni, current students like yourself are able to form meaningful relationships with their professors, gain hands-on experience in the classroom, and forge lasting friendships in their clubs and organizations.

    Now as you begin your transition from student to alumni, it's time to join the thousands of other Spartans in making a gift to York College to support the next generation of students!
