Last year, more than 10,000 organizations in 46 countries came together to celebrate #GivingTuesday.

This year, the Office of Annual Giving invites the Spelman community to join the movement and help "Get Out the Give" on December 2 by...

The Every Woman...Every Year! Campaign

100% Alumnae Participation

Our goal is to encourage every Spelman alumna to support our alma mater every fiscal year (July 1 to June 30). Your consistent annual support enables us to maintain the excellence associated with a Spelman College education. Your impact starts here.

Every gift counts (no matter the size), and provides the increased resources needed to support student scholarships, enhance faculty resources, and make campus improvements. Now more than ever the success of our students depends on your contributions. This year all gifts to the Annual Fund will support scholarships and make an impact for students in need. We encourage alumnae to invest in their beloved Spelman— Every Woman...Every Year! to ensure the sisters who follow in their footsteps have equal opportunity for success.

The circle of impact begins with individual action. Your gift can be the catalyst that changes the life of a Spelman sister.


  • Support fundraising efforts to provide scholarships funds, faculty recruitment, and improve quality of student life.
  • Demonstrates a vote of confidence in Spelman College.
  • Gifts to Spelman College (regardless of source and size) support Every Spelman Woman, Every Year!
