Share a Coke With Spelman

This Founders Day we ask every alumna to Share a Coke with Spelman by maximizing the Coca-Cola matching gift. Renew or make your gift to the College by Founders Day, April 11, 2016.

Share A CokeThe Coca-Cola Foundation recognizes the need to increase our ability to provide student scholarships, support for our talented faculty members, and create competitive innovative academic programs at Spelman.

Alumnae contributions to Spelman have long supported these areas and continue to define the legacy built over the last 134 years. In support of our Every Woman…Every Year! efforts, the Coca-Cola Foundation has partnered with the College to issue a $1M Alumnae Challenge and we need you to answer the call.

The Coca-Cola Foundation will match every dollar over the amount you gave in the prior fiscal year (July 1, 2014 -- June 30, 2015) up to $500K.

If you did not give during that period, your entire gift is matched. For example, if you contributed $100 to Spelman during fiscal year 2015, and increase your contribution to $150, the additional $50 will be matched by the Coca-Cola Foundation.

As an added bonus, the matching portion will be applied to the same designation as your contribution. If you supported a scholarship fund with your gift of $150, that same fund will be the recipient of the matching gift.
