Each year, students in the graduating class are encouraged to give in honor of their transition to Blackburn Fellows. The campaign enables graduating students to leave their mark on the Blackburn Institute and make gifts to the programs for the general support of the institute or for specific programs that have been meaningful to them. Gifts from students also serve to support the Recent Graduate Advisory Board member. Student donations are matched, up to $250, by Advisory Board members to reduce or eliminate the financial burden on recent graduates that make the commitment to serving their graduating class and students for a three-year period.
