1770 Society

Taking its name from the year that the College of Charleston was founded, the 1770 Society recognizes alumni, parents, faculty, staff, students, friends, corporations and foundations that give $1,000 or more annually.

1770 Society donors provide leadership in their designation of annual support across campus. Gifts at the 1770 Society level impact every corner of campus, including athletics; scholarships; leadership-based student programming; research initiatives; and groundbreaking technology in the arts and sciences.

1770 Society donors are invited to special events throughout the year that celebrate private philanthropy to the College and give opportunities to meet campus leadership. To see photos from the recent 1770 & GOLD Societies Recognition Reception, click here.
