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:

Nia Page

Nia Page, a graduating senior international studies major from Nashville, Tennessee, is the 78th Student Government President at Spelman College, an honor she says has been one of her greatest privileges.

"I am thankful for the legacy I have been able to follow from the SGA presidents who served during my time at Spelman  -- Imani Dixon, Jill Cartwright, and Bria Paige as well as for the SGA presidents who served years ago and guided me -- Stacey Abrams and Dawn Thompson. They have paved the way and created a beautiful legacy of servant leadership in striving to make the 'Choice to change the world'.' I am especially grateful that my legacy is continuing with the future SGA President, Fana Haileselassie, of the 79th administration," said Page.

"Spelman College is more to me than merely the iconic Spelman gates, the archway, Packard, or Rockefeller. It is global sisterhood, a culture, a community, and a family. To me, Spelman is the 139 years old legacy of Sophia's and Harriet's stand against Jim Crow America and their dedication to the education of Black women. My identity is entwined with Spelman College, and it is because of Spelman that I am now ready to continue the legacy beyond the gates upon graduation."

Page desires to be the first Black woman ambassador to China. Utilizing her knowledge of global politics, she says she will be appointed as the Secretary of State. Following in the steps of Condolezza Rice, she will bridge the gap between countries and cultures through soft politics and by protecting nations' sovereignty while upholding human rights.

Our Mission

The purpose of the Office of Annual Giving at Spelman College is to effectively raise funds from all constituency groups, encouraging annual contributions that support and advance the mission of Spelman College. Gifts to the Annual Fund (Unrestricted Fund), support the College’s strong legacy and is the foundation for transformative change.

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.
