UVa-Wise Senior Class Gift Project

Make your very first gift to UVa-Wise now. You can make a difference!

Congratulations on reaching your Senior year at The University of Virginia’s College at Wise.  Each year, the Senior Class raises private funds to leave a lasting legacy at UVa-Wise. We invite you to consider participating and making a difference this year.


  1. Challenge 2016 is the name of this year’s project and seniors are encouraged to make a gift of $20.16.
  2. A second way to participate involves honoring the special people in your life who have helped you obtain your college education. Perhaps your parents, grandparents, or even a special faculty member that guided you along the right path. You have the opportunity to thank this special person by purchasing an elegant certificate of appreciation to demonstrate to them your appreciation for being so supportive during your college career. You may purchase up to four for $25.00. These special certificates will display your name as well as the name of the person you are honoring. A signature by College officials will complete the authenticity of this effort. Buy one or more with the proceeds benefiting the 2016 Senior Class Gift.
  3. Or, you may simply make a gift of $10 or more to the fund.
