Senior Class Gift
Dear Graduating Eberhardt School of Business Student,
Congratulations on reaching your goal of completing your business degree in the Eberhardt School. I am very proud of your accomplishment and I wish you great success in the coming years. As you contemplate and reflect upon your time here at the University of the Pacific, I would like to make you aware of the strong tradition of the "Senior Class Gift."
During the spring of each academic year, Pacific students are encouraged to rise to the challenge of supporting their institution by contributing to a legacy gift. Examples are gifts which fund a project of the graduating class, need and merit-based scholarships for fellow classmates and future alumni/e, undergraduate research initiatives, study abroad opportunities, and community service projects. By committing to making a contribution, graduating students have the opportunity to express their gratitude to the faculty, staff, and institution, and improves their alma mater for years to come.
To continuously improve the quality of the Eberhardt School, I would humbly ask that you consider making a contribution to the Eberhardt School of Business as your 2013 Class Gift. While we would clearly welcome a gift of any size, what matters most is your commitment toward making a gift. Each year, we strive for 100% participation from the Eberhardt School graduating class and I hope you will help us reach that goal. This year, any graduating student who makes a gift of at least $30.00 will receive a commemorative Eberhardt School "Class of 2013" tumbler. All you have to do is go to the "TIGER GIFT" portal and make your contribution to the "Eberhardt School of Business" and designate to "2013 Class Gift." Print the receipt of your gift and bring it to the Office of the Dean to receive your commemorative tumbler.
With your support, the Eberhardt School is positioned to become a leader among Pacific's academic colleges with the greatest participation of philanthropy among its graduating students. We have made strides in the past two years and there is more to come. To show you my confidence in the Eberhardt School's Class of 2013, I have made my personal contribution to the Eberhardt School in honor of the Class of 2013. Will you?
Thank you for your consideration I thank you for you.
Lewis R. Gale
Dean and Professor of Business
