UVa-Wise Senior Class Gift Project

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

As graduation approaches, the 2019 Senior Class Gift is an opportunity for all seniors to reflect on their time at The University of Virginia’s College at Wise and support future generations of students. The gift you leave as a senior will be used to enhance the college experience for all students who follow in their footsteps. Participating in the Class Gift project will be a part of your legacy at UVa-Wise. We invite you to consider joining this project and making a difference this year.


  1. Seniors are encouraged to make a gift of $20.19, which can go to any UVa-Wise department, scholarship, organization, or team.
  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 Chancellor Donna P. Henry will complete the authenticity of this effort. Buy one or more with the proceeds benefiting the 2019 Senior Class Gift.
  3. Or, you may simply make a gift of $10 or more to the fund.
