Our History

In 2006, Spelman College launched the Every Woman… Every Year! campaign to increase Alumnae participation. Over the last 10 years, our alumnae participation rate has doubled, helping Spelman to remain the No. 1 HBCU over the past several years. To keep Spelman at the top we need the support of EVERY alumna EVERY year.

By making an annual gift to Spelman, you have a direct impact on the College’s ability to plan its resources and continue providing an outstanding education for the next generation of Spelman students. If each of our 18,000+ alumnae made a gift every year, the investment would provide the critical resources to empower our students and truly demonstrate how Spelman women can change the lives of students and the world.
