Senior Class Gift

Your Senior Class Gift is more than a donation it’s your chance to leave a legacy at Carnegie Mellon and help future Tartans for years to come. Your gift is an expression of appreciation for the experiences that made your time at CMU so incredible.  

Give to what you love

You can support the area of CMU the means the most to you — a college, department, club, organization or program that has made a difference in your life. Any gift of $5 or greater will be counted toward the Senior Class Gift. 

It is important for us to support the next generation of students so they can have the same wonderful experience we currently have.”

Student Giving Committee

The Student Giving Committee (SGC) is a group of students that promotes philanthropy on campus by encouraging their peers to give back.  

Earlier this year, members of the student giving committee had the opportunity to meet with President Jahanian and discuss the importance and impact of student giving.

Meet the 2020 Committee 

The committee is made up of students from all four classes, representing a broad range of colleges, fraternities and sororities, student organizations, athletics and more.
