Help Us Keep Spelman Strong!

Spelman Strong LogoSince its inception, Spelman College has transformed from a one-room seminary to a pioneering undergraduate liberal arts institution. 143 years later, the vision of Sophia B. Packard and Harriet E. Giles has empowered and elevated thousands of brilliant young Black women to become global change agents.

The united advocacy of our alumnae and supporters enables Spelman to remain steadfast in her mission. Making a gift to Spelman Strong, the College’s unrestricted fund, enhances the Institution by fostering a culture of innovation, ensuring scholarships for every student’s graduation, and laying the groundwork for transformative change and improved operations. Your dedication to supporting the college’s unrestricted fund has been instrumental in achieving the remarkable milestones of our alumnae and students.

Founders Day 2024


On April 11, 1881, Sophia B. Packard and Harriet E. Giles established Spelman College, an institution dedicated to empowering women of African descent with exceptional education. With a pledge of $100, they laid the foundation for a pioneering liberal arts institution that continues to equip and elevate brilliant young Black women, enabling them to become global changemakers.

As we celebrate the founding of Spelman, we honor the shared history and traditions that unite us as sisters. Our exceptional accomplishments and rich heritage testify to the strength and resilience of our students, alumnae, faculty and staff.

At the heart of our mission lies Spelman Strong, the College’s unrestricted fund that drives groundbreaking initiatives, fosters innovation, and ensures every student can access the resources they need to succeed. By contributing to Spelman Strong, you make a lasting impact on the lives of our students and become an integral part of their remarkable journeys.
