Spelman Class of 1892

Annual Giving

In accordance with President Campbell’s community message regarding Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms' 14-day stay-at-home executive order, the Division of Institutional Advancement staff will be conducting their operations exclusively away from the physical campus. Working remotely will affect the staff's ability to process mailed-in donations and deliver tax receipts during the 14-day period. The College will continue to process all electronic transactions (including online donations, wire transfers, etc.) and produce electronic receipts during this time. If you have any questions, please contact us by phone at 1-866-512-1690 or email at

Founders Day of Giving

Founders Day of Giving

On April 9, 2020, we commemorate the 139th birthday of Spelman College. Founders Day was chosen as our Day of Giving - a day to pay homage to the sisterhood that was created within her gates. Spelman’s legacy is profound and far-reaching. She has changed the world for generations of Black women. From the founders to the first graduates to the thousands of women who paved the way for our present students, Spelman women have created a timeless legacy of love, sisterhood, and tenacity.

This year, we challenge 1,881 alumnae to fund the education of the next generation of Spelman women. Imagine the collective impact we could make if every alumna made a gift of at least $18.81, or increased her contribution to $188.10 or $1,881 by Founders Day. Leave a lasting legacy today.

Make your gift for Founders Day by Sunday, April 12, 2020. Let’s strengthen the legacy that was created by the women who came before us. Your support will give Spelman the resources and tools to expand, grow and provide future generations of Black women A Choice to Change the World.

Our Mission

The purpose of the Office of Annual Giving at Spelman College is to effectively raise funds from all constituency groups, encouraging annual contributions that support and advance the mission of Spelman College. Gifts to the Annual Fund (Unrestricted Fund), support the College’s strong legacy and is the foundation for transformative change.

Every Woman...Every Year History

In 2006, Spelman College launched the Every Woman… Every Year! campaign to increase Alumnae participation and the support of EVERY alumna EVERY year. Over the last 10 years, our alumnae participation rate has doubled, helping Spelman remain the No. 1 HBCU since the campaign launch. This year our goal is 35% alumnae participation and we cannot reach this goal without YOU.
