As a student, you may not think you’re in a position to make a difference through charitable giving. But at the University of Miami, students have been “paying it forward” to help their fellow ’Canes for more than 20 years. Every gift, no matter the size, has a real impact on changing the course of someone’s life.
Your gift also helps to boost UM’s rise in national rankings, such as U.S. News & World Report’s Best Colleges list. No matter what part of the University you choose to support, you’ll be advancing UM on its path to becoming the next great American university. Show your Hurricane Pride today by “bleeding orange, and giving green”!
As the student face of the University of Miami Alumni Association, the Student Alumni Ambassadors help prepare current students for life after graduation. These student leaders raise awareness of UMAA benefits and services, develop and execute the annual student philanthropy and Senior Class Gift campaigns, and host various educational and philanthropic events throughout the year.

The Senior Class Gift Campaign is a tradition of student philanthropy that dates back to 1992. Each year, graduating seniors make a small donation to create scholarships for fellow ’Canes. Graduating seniors have contributed more than $155,000 since 1992 to the Senior Class Gift Scholarship Fund, which helps rising seniors with financial needs to reach their goal of graduating.
A diverse student body is the hallmark of a UM education, but the Senior Class Gift Campaign offers a chance to unite all seniors through this commemorative philanthropic activity. The University of Miami is built on tradition, and this symbolic gift marks the beginning of a new tradition: staying connected through alumni support.
