Wilkes University

Senior Class Gifts

A touching component to the Wilkes Fund is the Senior Class Gift project.

Both practical and beautiful, each project not only allows the seniors to leave their mark on campus forever, but by contributing to the Wilkes Fund through this project, graduates are introduced to the joys and spirit of philanthropy early in life. The students reach out to their peers for support of the project.


The Class of 2005 pledged more than $11,000
to purchase a much-needed scoreboard for the Softball Field! 

Members of the Class of 1955, to recognize their 50th reunion year and the Class of 2005, also gave to the 2005 Senior Class gift.  Parents of graduating seniors participated in the “Step Up To The Plate” campaign to give a gift to honor a graduate.  The scoreboard for the Softball Field has been installed to forever remember the Class of 2005.
