Giving: Annual Giving

Student Philanthrophy

Student Philanthropy

Our mission is to provide a student perspective on giving back, promote awareness of the ways private gifts impact student life and establish a legacy of philanthropy that enhances the future of Spelman College. The Office of Annual Giving student philanthropy give students a close-up look at the fundraising operation at Spelman College, along with the opportunity to be involved in our efforts to raise awareness about the role philanthropy plays at our institution.

Student Impact: Student Giving Campaign

Imagine what your life would be like without Spelman College.  The memories you've created, the friends you've made, the information you've learned and the experience you've gained will benefit you for years to come.  Here is your opportunity to continue to shape this legacy while establishing your own. Each year, Spelman students demonstrate the spirit of giving by supporting the President's Safety Net Fund. The President's Safety Net Fund was created to support juniors and seniors who are at risk of not graduating from Spelman. This fiscal year, all gifts to the Annual Fund will support scholarships and help ensure a future for Spelman and its daughters. Through your generosity, you will be an inspiration to your sisters to give to the College and make a significant impact on campus through philanthropy.
