Alumni Giving

Pay it forward

You are one of more than 90,000 alumni in over 70 countries across the world who can call the College of Charleston their Alma Mater. You’re the lifeblood of our global university community and hold the power to make a real difference with your giving—at any level.

During your time at CofC, you benefited from the generosity of others, and now is a perfect time to pay it forward. The College depends on your support.

You may not be aware that:
  • Thousands of students benefit from annual gifts. In fact, more than 68% of all students receive some type of financial aid or scholarship support. The College of Charleston is committed to recruiting the most academically qualified students regardless of their financial circumstances. More than 240 students received scholarship support last year through the College of Charleston Fund which allowed them to focus more on academics and rely less on part-time work and loans.
  • Tuition only covers roughly half of the actual cost of educating a College of Charleston student.  The support that the College of Charleston Fund provides each year is one of the primary philanthropic sources bridging the gap between what tuition provides and the College’s total operating budget
  • Annual giving results in a substantial immediate impact on campus.  Consider, the annual economic impact from the College of Charleston Fund is equivalent to an additional $26 million in the College’s endowment.
