How Your Gift Makes an Impact

The generosity of our donors helps the College to continue to fulfill its mission and prepare women for their futures through leadership and service.

Alumnae gifts provide the financial foundation for Spelman College. Gifts are used to sustain the excellence of the Spelman educational experience, fund the College’s priorities, and ensure that we attract and educate leaders who will have a positive impact on society.

No matter how large or small, every gift makes an impact! Gifts to the College, in any amount, can provide countless resources for the College. If every alumna made a gift to the College every year:

  • Fewer students would leave because of financial hardship.
  • Faculty would have more resources available to enhance the academic experience of our students.
  • Spelman facilities, including the residence halls, would contribute to a world class environment.
  • Spelman would be able to add more academic programs and course offerings.
  • Spelman would be able to attract and retain more outstanding faculty members.
Spelman has inspired and empowered Black women for 135 years. Our alumnae are a part of our rich history and bright future.Your achievements are a source of pride to us, bringing recognition to the College. As we look to the future, alumnae support must remain a priority for generations to come.

Your annual support to the College will enable us to continue to create opportunities for current and future students.
