We would like to extend heartfelt thanks and appreciation to all Reunion alumnae who have made a gift to the College during the 2023 fiscal year so far. Because of the collective generosity of our alumnae, we reached a grand total of $1,712,033.60 and 35.45% participation.

There’s Still Time

For alumnae who have not made your gift to the College, there is still an opportunity for you to make an impact and increase your respective class's dollar amount and participation rate for this year. To have your gift counted for the 2023 fiscal year, please make your gift to Spelman by Friday, June 30, 2023, 11:59 pm EDT. We encourage alumnae to make a gift to Spelman College, not just this year, but every year.

Remember, participation is about the number of alumnae who contribute, not the amount. 

If you have any questions about Reunion Giving, please email the Office of Annual Giving at or call us at 1-866-512-1690.

Class Gifts – Gifts of Love

Reunion is a time-honored tradition when alumnae return to Spelman every five years to celebrate, show love, and support their beloved Spelman College. Your gifts to Spelman during Reunion are essential for preserving the College’s rich history and traditions. 

Your Gift Matters. Give Today.
