Senior Class Gift: Count Me In

Class of 2021… Can we Count You In?

The senior class gift is a proud Montclair State tradition where members of the graduating class invest in the University, joining alumni and fellow students in strengthening the areas of Montclair State that they love. Being a part of the senior class gift gives members of the Class of 2021 the opportunity to leave their legacy by making their first gift to the University. Gifts to any program or area at Montclair State count. You can choose to support the Emergency Scholarship Fund, created by the Class of 2015, or the program or club that means the most to you.

Why should I give?

All donations to the Class of 2021 – Senior Class Gift will directly support students’ success. Let’s join together to be counted in our class gift drive: #CountMeInMontclair

Every student at Montclair State has benefitted from donor generosity to areas of academic support, emergency funding for students and overall priorities to boost students’ success every day.
Your gift will pay it forward for future Red Hawks and kick-start your philanthropic connection to Montclair State.

How do I give?

Our campaign has been extended to June 30!
