The Student Philanthropy Committee was created in order to instill a culture of philanthropy among students on campus as they become familiar with all it means to be a ZAG FOR LIFE! As a culmination of the committee's effort, a concerted Senior Fund effort is lead by the SPC, chaired by seniors, and invites the Class of 2017 to become part of the legacy and tradition that has made a Gonzaga experience possible.
The Student Philanthropy Committee and the Senior Fund is not about the amount of money given, but about participation on campus in giving back to Gonzaga and recognizing the role philanthropy to Gonzaga plays in financial aid, scholarships and the Gonzaga experience.
The Gonzaga University Student Philanthropy Committee is dedicated to educating students about the impact of donor generosity and what it means to be a future Gonzaga alumni. The committee will provide ways for current students to leave their legacy through philanthropy and the distinguished tradition of humanistic, Catholic, and Jesuit educations to enhance the future of Gonzaga University.
