The Class Gift is an annual gesture of gratitude by the graduating DDS and IDS classes for the outstanding education they received at Pacific Dugoni. Started by the Class of 2008 to thank family, friends, faculty, staff and administration for their encouragement, the gift has annually received exceptional support in both the amount raised and number of class members who participate.
The Class Gift supports the Pacific Dugoni Annual Fund and will be used by Dean Patrick J. Ferrillo, Jr. for the school's most pressing needs. In 2013 it will benefit the hiring of clinic support staff and clinic staff training as they adapt to the new group practice model.
Your gift says "thank you" to the Pacific Dugoni family for all that you received while you were a student. By giving back you will continue a wonderful tradition of philanthropy and celebrate Pacific Dugoni's mission, vision and values.
If you wish to acknowledge someone special, such as a faculty, staff, or family member, you may make your gift in their honor or memory. They or their family will receive notification of your gift which will also be acknowledged in the next edition of the alumni magazine Contact Point.
