Senior Class Legacy Campaign

Senior Class Legacy Campaign

Continue the Legacy.

The Senior Class Legacy Campaign is in its third year at Doane University. Last year, 50 percent of the Class of 2018 donated. This year, we are striving to make a lasting impact with at least 60 percent of the Class of 2018 making a donation.

Donations from the Senior Class Legacy Campaign will benefit the Doane Fund, which supports all aspects of the University. Your donation will impact scholarships, travel abroad programs, academic programs, music, athletics, Greek Life - you name it. Give to the Doane Fund to ensure Future Tigers can have the one-of-a-kind Doane experience you did.

Every donation matters, even just $20.19. The giving percentage of alumni who give back boosts our school's prestige in the academic community. When alumni show confidence by giving back, we have a better shot at receiving outside grants.

The Senior Class Legacy Campaign includes two giving options:

2019 Club - $20.19 yearly recurring donation; Tiger Club - $10 one time gift

If you join the 2019 Club you will receive:

  • Graduation Cord
  • Alumni License Plate
    Free Ticket to the End of the Year Celebration

If you join the Tiger Club you will receive:

  • Alumni License Plate
  • Free Ticket to the End of the Year Celebration 
  • Name on Donor wall in Perry Campus Center

Ways to make your donation:

  • Visit
  • Click "Give Now" or "Recurring Donation" depending on which club you would like to join
  • Designate to "Class of 2019"
  • Select recurring timeline + giving amount
  • The site will then take you to PayPal to add bank informatoin

*You can also make your donation by visiting the Alumni Office in Padour Walker anytime M-F and speak with Anne Ziola or Peter Strobel.


Why should I donate when I already pay tuition?

Tuition only covers a portion of the cost it takes to operate Doane University. Several programs around campus including the College to Career Center, Peer Tutoring, and Travel Abroad are 100 percent funded by donations. By making your donation, you are helping support various aspects of campus including funding vital scholarships for our students. Giving back to your alma mater helps ensure Future Tigers have the same experience you did.


Will my small amount actually make a difference?


The percentage of alumni and students who give, regardless of the amount, impacts Doane’s prestige and boosts our overall giving percentage. When students and alumni show confidence by giving back, we have a better chance at receiving outside grants. In addition, last year gifts of $250 or less added up to $178,000 of support for the university!


What is the Doane Fund?


The Doane Fund encompasses gifts that can be made and spent within one fiscal year.  Every year, loyal Doane Fund donors provide vital support to enhancing the Doane University experience for our students. Areas of support from the Doane Fund include: Scholarships, Academic Programs, Fine Arts, Travel and Study Abroad, Campus Beauty, Technology and Undergraduate Research and more. To break it down, the Doane Fund approximately supports 50 percent people, 35 percent financial aid, athletics and student life, and 15 percent daily needs. Simply put, the Doane Fund supports every aspect of Doane University.

Do I have to donate to the Doane Fund?


If you do not wish to donate to the Doane Fund, you may specify a program or scholarship where you’d like your money to go.
