Philanthropy Mission

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 take a leadership role in developing Spelman College and its philanthropic future by increasing student donor participation and taking an active role in learning about the college's finances and interacting with Spelman faculty, staff, parents, and alumnae.

Student Giving Campaign

For decades, Spelman students have shown their pride and dedication by participating in the Student Giving Campaign. By designating their contributions to the President's Safety Net Fund, students can ensure that their peers can complete their academic journey by receiving the necessary funds to pay off any outstanding balances.

All Spelman students are encouraged to join the Student Philanthropy Council, volunteer during annual giving campaign events, and make donations to the College.

Seniors are also encouraged to take part in the Senior Legacy Campaign, which allows them to make a gift to Spelman in honor of their graduating year. In return for their generosity, seniors receive a charmed Spelman blue tassel to wear during Founders Day, Class Day, and Baccalaureate.

Through your involvement, you can inspire other students to give back to Spelman and significantly impact their peers through philanthropy. Let's work together to continue the tradition of Spelman pride and generosity!

Suggested Giving Amounts Per Class Year for the 2023-2024 Academic Year:

  • Senior $20.24
  • Junior $18.81
  • Sophomore $16.00
  • First Year $14.20

Senior Legacy Campaign

Imagine your life without the experience of Spelman College. The memories you've made, the lifelong friendships you've established, and the knowledge you've gained will continue to benefit you for years to come. As you prepare to make your mark on the world beyond Spelman's gates, this is your chance to create a lasting legacy of giving and continue the tradition. The 2024 Senior Legacy Campaign begins March 1, 2024, and runs through June 30, 2024!

Through the Senior Legacy Campaign, you can begin your journey as a Spelman alumna and show your commitment to the College, your sisters, family, and friends. By donating $20.24, you will commemorate your graduating class year and receive a charmed Spelman blue tassel to wear proudly during Founders Day, Class Day, and Baccalaureate.

Make your gift now to secure your Spelman charmed blue tassel before Founders Day! Blue tassels can be picked up every Wednesday starting March 6 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Upper Manley. Check your emails for campaign related information.
