Annual Fund AmbassadorBecome an Annual Fund Ambassador

Our goal is to increase alumnae giving to 35% and add $1 million of support to the annual fund by June 30. 

We are encouraging alumnae to become annual fund ambassadors to help spread the word about increasing participation. Annual fund ambassadors can create their own giving profile and receive a custom link to share with their friend and classmates. Ambassadors can then use their profile to view the impact they are having on the Annual Fund by tracking the list of donors who used their custom link.

To become an ambassador, please email to request a custom link. You will then receive an email with instructions for creating your profile.

History of Every Woman...Every Year!

In 2006, Spelman College launched the Every Woman… Every Year! campaign to increase Alumnae participation and the support of EVERY alumna EVERY year. Over the last 10 years, our alumnae participation rate has doubled, helping Spelman remain the No. 1 HBCU since the campaign launch. This year our goal is 35% alumnae participation and we cannot reach this goal without YOU.
