Beverly Daniel Tatum: Letter to the Community

Dear Spelman Community and Friends,

As many of you know, we publicly launched a major comprehensive fundraising campaign in the fall of 2009—with a goal of $150 million dollars, the largest campaign effort in our history.  Thanks to the hard work of many, and the generous support of our donors, including 71% of our alumnae who made gifts during the campaign, we not only met our goal, but we have exceeded it. Today, I am happy to report that we have successfully raised $157.8 million. Read More
