Spelman Strong Road to June 30 2022

The Road to June 30

This year at Spelman has proven to be one of great strength and tenacity. From maintaining excellence in an ongoing global pandemic to remaining resilient in the wake of threats, Spelman students have continued to make this year a remarkable one.

Spelman remains strong because of the commitment and support of alumnae like you, who know the power of sisters supporting sisters. Your participation and investment are crucial to our success in the education of young women. Every gift, regardless of size, increases Spelman’s alumnae participation rate. A higher participation rate means better national rankings, stronger financial ratings, greater appeal to prospective students and faculty, and increased value to every Spelman College degree.

By making a gift to Spelman this year and each year after, you directly impact the College’s ability to plan its resources and continue providing outstanding education for the next generation of Spelman students. Can you imagine the collective impact if all our 20,000+ alumnae made a gift every year?

As we work to close out another fiscal year, we ask you to join your sisters on the Road to June 30 and make your gift before 11:59 p.m. EDT on June 30, 2022. Your donation will truly change the lives of Spelman students. Empower the next generation to transcend the paths you’ve pioneered and reach new heights as they make their Choice to Change the World!

Spelman Strong Your Gift to Change the World

Introducing Spelman Strong

In commemoration of Spelman’s 140th Birthday, we renamed our Annual Fund to reflect the enduring nature of Spelman’s legacy: Spelman Strong. With your Spelman Strong donations, we ensure the College’s financial stability, expansion and longevity for years to come. The Spelman Strong fund is the crucial bridge between tuition revenue and the actual cost of running the College, offering relief to the operating budget and directly affecting students, faculty and numerous programs across Spelman College. Any gift made to Spelman Strong also counts towards the ASCEND Campaign.

What Makes You Spelman Strong?

Spelman is as multifaceted as the women who have walked her halls. Our daughters, our sisters, our friends — they all come here with hopes and dreams and leave prepared to make their mark. Spelman Strong is the way we come together to make that happen. This fund is the lifeblood of Spelman’s financial stability, expansion and longevity. It directly influences every facet of a Spelmanite’s experience, from providing her with access to the best faculty talent to creating a campus of which she can be proud. With your annual Spelman Strong donation, Spelman’s legacy will resound for generations to come. So, let us know: what makes you Spelman Strong?

By supporting Spelman Strong, you reinforce our Four Pillars of Spelman's Excellence:

  1. Fund Her Future: Spelman Strong gifts support ALL students by allowing the College to operate at peak potential without drawing down our endowment more than would be prudent or raising tuition substantially.
  2. Supporting and Advancing Academic Excellence: Spelman Strong gifts provide funding for important faculty initiatives, allow for the expansion of the faculty and support numerous academic programs across the College.
  3. Foundation for Transformative Change: Spelman Strong gifts allow the College to respond to the most pressing financial concerns and provide the flexibility to seize unique and important opportunities.
  4. Fund Unrestricted Possibilities: Spelman Strong gifts are a promise to provide unrestricted possibilities for our students to change the world.

Let’s strengthen the legacy that was created by the women who came before us. Your support will give Spelman the foundation and fortitude to weather any storm. Continue the legacy today and keep Spelman Strong!
