2014 Senior Challenge
Every year, the graduating class leaves behind a gift as a token of appreciation to the University. The first graduating class of 1964 left the Enormous Luther statue, now lovingly known as Gumby. The class of 2012 started the tradition of donating their gift to the CLU Annual Fund.
The Senior Challenge is our chance to join the Class of 2014 and start the tradition of giving back to support fellow current and future students.
Why should you give? Just ask some of your fellow seniors:
"How do you value gratitude? Every student at CLU has much for which to be grateful, but most of us probably can't afford to give back thousands of dollars to the school. However, each of us could probably afford to skip a meal, or wait to buy those $70 jeans, and, instead, give to the annual fund. Who knows? Your gift to the fund might give a student the chance to avoid taking out a loan just to pay for textbooks. Plus, giving back is a great way to show gratitude for what CLU has given to you. So, this time, skipped lunch is on me! Next time, are you game?" - Russell Fletcher '14
"A quality education, like one offered at CLU, is expensive and without financial help I wouldn't have been able to attend this amazing university. I'm just trying to do my part, give back a little, and help someone else enjoy what CLU has to offer." -Gaby Torres '14
Current Amount: $1,917.99
To beat last year's class, this year we have a goal of $8,600! If you want to beat the Class of 2013, tell your friends and spread the word!
Make your gift!
Or bring your gift directly to the Annual Fund office upstairs in the Pederson Administration Building, Suite 209.
Plus, give a gift of $20.14 or more, and receive a special, one of a kind senior t-shirt and a purple & gold tassel for graduation! Don't be left out!
Why is the Senior Challenge important?
- Senior Challenge is our first step into the community of Cal Lutheran alumni. After four years of shared experiences, it is a chance to think about the unique resources we have had access to and give back to the institution and community that shaped us.
- It's a challenge among the Class of 2014 seniors to raise money to support financial aid, scholarships, academic and co-curricular programming, study abroad opportunities, classroom and lab equipment, state of the art technology and hiring and maintaining great faculty.
- It is a class milestone. One that will have a lasting impact on the next generation of Cal Lutheran students. This money has an immediate impact and will be spent in the same year it is received, supporting both current and future students.
