What is the Senior Class Gift?
The senior class gift is the opportunity to discover the power of our generosity. This community, our friendships, and what we have learned through our four years at CMC have prepared us for this moment. In CMC's long-standing tradition of giving back, seniors who donate may direct their gift to any area of the college that is important to them. No gift is too small--the act of giving what is meaningful to you is the first step--and all gifts are greatly appreciated.
Is my participation important?
YES! Strong participation in the senior class gift--and annually thereafter--recognizes us as engaged members of the community who valued our experiences here. This also signals to the world that the CMC experience is one-of-a-kind, and our alumni successes are unparalleled. Did you know that most CMC alumni made their first gift as a senior? Alumni participation continues to be an important point of pride.
Join the Crown Society today!
By making your senior gift today, you will automatically be inducted into the Crown Society, which is an exclusive group comprised of CMC’s most loyal donors. Consistent giving every year allows CMC to focus on long-term goals and critical needs. Usually, you need five years of consecutive giving to become a Crown Society member, but seniors can join by making their senior gift and maintain their membership by giving back every year after. Start your tradition of giving today and take your first step towards becoming the newest member of the Crown Society!
Res Publica Associates
Res Publica Society members are leadership donors who have the greatest impact on supporting CMC. As part of Senior Class Gift, you can join the Society as a Res Publica Associate (RPA) with a gift of $150 or more. Your RPA membership, supporting the Alumni Fund, provides all of the benefits of the Res Publica Society, as well as a CMC wine glass as a token of the College’s appreciation for joining the RPA as a current senior.
