Student Philanthrophy

Student Philanthropy

Student philanthropy at Spelman establishes a legacy of generosity that enhances the future of alumnae giving at the College. The primary mission of the student philanthropy program is to offer students perspective into the role of philanthropy at our institution and provide an up close-up look at the fundraising operations at the College. Student involvement includes:

  • Becoming a member of the Student Philanthropy Council.
  • Volunteering with the Office of Annual Giving.
  • Making a gift.

Student Giving Campaign

For decades, students have demonstrated their Spelman pride through the Student Giving Campaign. Students are encouraged to designate their gifts to the President’s Safety Net Fund, which helps to ensure that students can complete their academic journey by providing funds to students who have unpaid balances.

All Spelman students are encouraged to participate in the Student Giving Campaign by becoming members of the Student Philanthropy Council, volunteering during annual giving campaign events and activities, and donating to the College. 

Seniors are encouraged to participate in the Senior Legacy Campaign where they make a gift to Spelman in honor of their graduating year. For their generosity, seniors are presented with a charmed, Spelman blue tassel to adorn during Founders Day, Class Day, and Baccalaureate. 

Through your participation, you will inspire your sisters to give back to Spelman and make a significant impact on their peers through philanthropy.
