Spelman Class of 1892

Annual Giving

The Road to June 30

For this final campaign of our fiscal year 2020, we're challenging each of our main regions - the Northeast, South Central & Southeast, Western & Far West, and the Great Lakes - to compete based on participation rates!
 
When you make a gift, of any amount, not only are you contributing to Spelman's mission, but you're also increasing our alumnae donor participation rate, which impacts our rankings by showing the world that our alumnae support us.
 
The region that reaches the highest participation rate this month wins! Represent your region, and show your Spelman spirit by supporting your alma mater today!

For us to remain Spelman strong, we need your help!

 

A Special Salute to the Class of 2020

Congratulations to the Spelman College Class of 2020

Congratulations to all of our graduating seniors. The Class of 2020 is the embodiment of the perseverance, tenacity, dedication, leadership and empowerment that Spelman strives to inspire in all of our students. We are incredibly proud of everything they have achieved over the past four years in the face of obstacles and challenges. Despite their final year being abruptly interrupted, our seniors have remained undaunted and successfully completed their academic courses. They have worked so hard to earn their degrees, and although their commencement ceremonies have been postponed, we celebrate them now. Please enjoy learning about a few of our brilliant graduates:

April Lewis, C’2020

May 2020

April LewisApril Lewis is a graduating senior health science major on the pre-medical track from St. Louis, Missouri. She served as the 2019-2020 Student Government Association’s Secretary of Institutional Advancement & College Relations.

"Legacy. As a high school senior and soon to be first generation college student, I didn't know much about applying for college, college life, nor which college I would be interested in attending. During a campus visit to Spelman, I learned that my mother and I both shared the same birthday as Spelman: April 11.

"Legacy. When I enrolled in the Fall of 2016, I participated in Spelman traditions and became a part of a community of leaders, innovators and advocates -- all Spelmanites embody these identities in their own right," said Lewis.

"I often reminisce about how I got here and managed to stay. The many nights of prayers, along with years of suffering that those before me faced, allowed me to receive favor from God and Spelman College. I have learned so much from this institution about the importance of community, diligence, and how to impact others to leave a legacy. I believe I have left my mark on Spelman's campus. This fall, I will begin my medical school journey, and I look forward to utilizing the skills I have gained at Spelman in medical spaces."

Every Woman...Every Year History

In 2006, Spelman College launched the Every Woman… Every Year! campaign to increase Alumnae participation and the support of EVERY alumna EVERY year. Over the last 10 years, our alumnae participation rate has doubled, helping Spelman remain the No. 1 HBCU since the campaign launch. This year our goal is 35% alumnae participation and we cannot reach this goal without YOU.
