About the Senior Class Gift

Founded by the Class of 2017, the Senior Class Gift is the graduating class’ gift to the College on the occasion of their graduation. The Senior Class Gift – a two-week, class-based effort directed towards financial aid – serves to encourage a continued tradition of giving and to inspire alumni to continue giving back to the College, even after graduation.  

The Cause

This year’s Senior Class Gift will go towards Financial Aid. Yale-NUS admits students on a needs-blind basis, meaning that it does not deny any deserving student an opportunity to have a Yale-NUS education simply because they are unable to afford it. Financial aid enables financially needy students to study at Yale-NUS without having to worry about their financial burdens or obligations.

Campaign Challenges


90% Participation

The 'Class of 2017 Award' will be established if seniors reach 90% participation in giving to this campaign. The Award will recognise an individual from every graduating class who has contributed the most towards the College, starting with ours.

One-to-One Matching

All gifts of at least $20 will be generously matched dollar for dollar, up to $100 per gift, thus doubling the impact of our gift to financial aid!

College Challenge

Seniors, don’t let your Residential Colleges down! There will be a special surprise (think fun, think food, think community) for the winning Residential College with the highest giving participation rate. Join your College Chairs, spread the word and rally your fellow Residential College mates to give towards this campaign.

Meet the Committee

Together, we helped build an all-new college, foster a spirit of belonging, form three residential colleges with distinct identities, found over 50 student organisations, and leave behind many other college traditions. Let’s continue this tradition of giving and inspire alumni to continue giving back to the College, even after graduation.
