Follow the Class of 2012's Example

Before they walk across the graduation stage, the members of the Class of 2012 are supporting Wagner by making donations toward a class gift. They know that by contributing to the school and raising Wagner's alumni giving rate, they increase the value of their degrees - and they're on pace to beat the participation record set by the Class of 2009!

All alumni are invited to get involved. Make an Online Contribution in solidarity with these students and their giving spirit.

THANK YOU for supporting the students who follow in your footsteps.
