Graduating Class Gifts

Support Rider / Annual Giving / Graduating Class Gifts

What is the Graduating Class Gift?

The Graduating Class Gift is a long-standing tradition in which graduating students come together to actively invest in the future of Rider by making their first gift back to the University.


The most important part of the Graduating Class Gift is your participation. The Class of 2014 began a new tradition of honoring the members of the Rider faculty and staff who made the most impact on their time here.  
Who will you honor through your class gift?

Why should you give?

  • To support Rider's future students; just as past alumni donations supported you

  • To help the current graduating class set a new record for participation in giving

  • To make your degree more valuable - strong support from students and alumni helps Rider rise in the national rankings

  • Your name will be listed as a participant in the Commencement Booklet (gifts must be received by April 18, 2015) and 2015 Honor Roll of Donors (gifts must be received by April 18, 2015)
