Ways to Give
Whether you choose to give to the Annual Fund; make a leadership gift of $25,000 or more; provide a gift or grant through your business or foundation; or plan to make future gift, Spelman College appreciates your commitment to the education of our extraordinary students. You can make your gifts through the following vehicles:
Outright gifts yield immediate tax benefits and have an immediate impact on Spelman.
Various annuities pay you income now and preserve the principal for later use for Spelman.
Bequest intentions provide a living testament to your desire to invest in generations young women who sustain our tradition of achievement. Donors of a certain age who document their commitment by naming Spelman as beneficiary in their estate plans will receive recognition in the Campaign for Spelman College.
- Cash gifts and pledges: The easiest and most popular form of giving, these contributions can be made online; by electronic funds transfer; recurring credit card deductions; phone; or mail. For as little as $10 a month, the RCC option allows you to set up regular, automatic payments charged to the card that you select and your electronic funds transfer gifts to Spelman will be automatically deducted from your checking or savings account.

- Gifts of appreciated securities: Sometimes more valuable than outright gifts, these contributions give you an immediate tax deduction and do not incur capital gains. The sale of these transferred securities enables Spelman to support needed initiatives.
- Gifts of real property: When you deed you home/vacation home, undeveloped property, or commercial building to Spelman, these gifts also give you an immediate tax deduction and do not incur capital gains. Spelman may either use your property for the College or sell it and apply the proceeds to achieve its strategic goals.
