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:

Jade Weatherington, C’2020

May 2020

Spelman Senior Jade WeatheringtonJade Weatherington is a graduating senior chemistry major from Roselle, New Jersey. This year, she served as the co-president for Grl Pwr and the president of the Chemistry Club. Upon graduation, she will continue her education by pursuing a masters degree in biomedical sciences.

"I thank God for 'A Choice to Change the World.' Although this is not how I planned for my senior year to end, I would not change a thing. It is comfortable to be still in a world full of changes, but adaptability allows for our growth to reach success. From the moment I entered the Spelman gates in 2016 to my fondest campus memories, I have been surrounded by friends and mentors who believed in my goals and have held me accountable for sticking with them."

"I am forever grateful for an empowering and supportive community that allowed me to mold myself into my version of what a Spelman woman is to be, and I am truly in love. The values of community, encouragement, and resilience have been my models for success throughout my time at Spelman, and will continue to guide me on my path to being a positive impact in the world. I will continue to empower the lives of others through their talents and God-given purpose."

This year our goal is 35% alumnae participation and we cannot reach this goal without YOU.
