Student Giving

Committed to Charleston

The mission of the Committed to Charleston (C2C) Society is to foster and promote the core purpose of the College of Charleston in both students and alumni, with a spirit of generosity, philanthropy, and the need to invest in the College both financially and wholeheartedly.

C2C is a giving society that is open to current students interested in enhancing the academic excellence, preserving a student-focused community and want to have a direct impact on advancing the College.

How does the College of Charleston Fund impact me as a student?

By the numbers:

68% of students on the CofC campus receive some type of financial aid or scholarship support, like those made possible through the College of Charleston Fund.

100% of all gifts to the College of Charleston Fund make an impact on the campus you call home.

C2C History

Since 2013, over 1,000 students have become C2C members. More than $25,000 has been donated to the College by C2C members. More than 100 student scholarships were awarded by the CofC Fund during the 2019-2020 academic year.

C2C’s Beginnings…

Committed to Charleston began over 7 years ago when class of 1992 graduate Johnnie Baxley and his wife, Michelle, challenged students to raise at least $10,000 for the College of Charleston Fund. Thus began The Baxley Challenge. For every gift made by a student, Johnnie and Michelle matched their gifts up to $10,000. Continue their legacy and show that as a student you are committed to Charleston by making your gift today!
