Families and friends of the Class of 2018 at St. Bonaventure University can offer congratulatory messages to graduates for publication in the back of this year's Commencement program.
It's a great way to recognize your student's achievements while creating a memorable keepsake that your family can treasure for years to come.
For a minimum donation of $25, parents and others may submit a 25-word message that will appear under a graduate's name in a special section of the program. (A typical congratulatory message is shown in our example at right.)
All proceeds from this initiative benefit The Bonaventure Fund, which provides students with financial support and enhanced university services and programs.
Parents and guardians of students in the Class of 2018 will receive a letter in the mail from Alan Riddle, SBU's Annual Giving Development Officer, explaining the Commencement messaging program. The mailing includes a mail-back form that may be used to craft and send back a message to your graduate.
An online option with an online pay portal is also available. To craft your message and make payment online, please CLICK HERE.
Congratulations! you should be proud of yourself. We are so proud of all your success and accomplishments. Follow your dreams and continue to work hard.
