With student services and scholarships in mind, a record number of members of the spring UCCS Class of 2022 have donated more than $7,500 to the annual class gift so far.
Created by the Class of 2015, the annual gift has raised over $70,000 to support UCCS scholarships and vital programs. The goal for seniors and graduate students is both engagement and to “pay it forward” for the next generation of UCCS students.
Members of the Class of 2022 are encouraged to designate gifts to Clyde’s Cupboard Food Pantry, the Multicultural Office for Student Access, Inclusiveness & Community (M.O.S.A.I.C.) or a scholarship fund in their college, although gifts to any fund are accepted. So far, a record-breaking 264 students from the May 2022 graduates have contributed to the gift.
Graduates who give at least $25 receive a blue cord as a memento to wear during Commencement.
Spring graduates also include 145 legacy students, who are descendants of UCCS graduates and who traditionally wear black and gold cords.
The Class of 2022 is invited to donate to the Clyde’s Crowd platform through the month of May.
