Class Gift

For our Reunion Class Gift, we celebrate the many ways that the Class of 1972 supports the college. This includes:        

  • All dollars. All gifts to Davidson during the current fiscal year (July 1, 2016 through June 30, 2017) will be included.
  • All multi-year commitments. Planning ahead for up to five years allows you to be strategic in your philanthropy and helps the college better predict future revenue. You'll also hear from the college less—you can even choose when to be reminded about making your annual gift.
  • Any good faith estimate of a planned gift documented since your last reunion in 2012.

    In honor of our 45th Reunion, we have formed an endowed Class of 1972 Scholarship. Our class has been committed to supporting students without the means to attend Davidson since our Senior Class Gift. Please consider designating a portion of your gift to this special project in honor of our 45 years as alumni.             

Make your gift today.

If you have questions about your reunion gift or wish to make a multi-year commitment, please contact The Fund for Davidson at or 704-894-2680.

All gifts and multi-year commitments made during the reunion year will also count for the current Game Changers campaign. Please visit the campaign website to learn about college priorities and to recommend a Game Changer.
