Senior Class Fund
Congratulations, Class of 2018—we did it!
By reaching 85 percent class participation, we have set a new Senior Class Fund participation record and we secured a total of $100,000 in challenge gifts to Experience Vanderbilt from Vanderbilt Board of Trust member and student philanthropy advocate, Alex Taylor BS'97!
To congratulate us on our success and welcome us to the Vanderbilt alumni family, Alex has sent us this special message!
Thank you for making a difference at the place that has given us so much during our time as Commodores.
Your 2018 Senior Class Fund officers:
Why I Give
“I am giving as a current Vanderbilt senior because I know how important this money is for student organizations. My Vanderbilt experience and community has been shaped by these experiences and I want to support future Vanderbilt students in these endeavors.”
–Jordyn Margolis, Vanderbilt Class of 2018
“Vanderbilt has given me more opportunities than I can even name. Without the financial aid that this school has given me over my four years at Vanderbilt, I would not have been able to attend. Thank you, Vandy!”
–Alyssa Janco, Vanderbilt Class of 2017
“Ralph Waldo Emerson once said "to know one life has breathed easier because you have lived... this is to have succeeded." I cannot directly touch the lives of each new student Vanderbilt welcomes, but I hope that my gift can benefit the programs and opportunities that will also positively influence the next Vanderbilt generation and transform them into bold and proud Commodores”
–Allee Smith, Vanderbilt Class of 2017
