Senior class gifts are a tradition of many academic institutes where the graduating class gives back to their college or university.  Appalachian State University is one really great example.  This year, an initiative was created that encouraged student giving.  It was the university’s hope to start a tradition with the Class of 2012.

Senior donations in the form of $20.12 to mark the year were donated to the Appalachian Fund which helps more than 70 areas of the campus to provide student scholarship supplements, training and development programs for faculty and staff as well as give students international travel opportunities and art programs.  This helped to create a strong sense of pride and responsibility in the graduates.  Their simple act of generosity makes a big difference in the lives of the students and staff members that they touch.

Philanthropy is strongly encouraged and a good way to get everyone on board with the idea is through the creation and distribution of lapel pins.  The small tokens of appreciation can carry a bold and meaningful message.  Many schools cater the text to fit the event they’re promoting or the cause that they’re supporting.  This allows them to gain support through the use of custom lapel pins.
