About philanthropy

Each year, private support to the College of Charleston plays a critical role in preserving our place as one of the nation's best public liberal arts and sciences universities.

Philanthropy at the College is not defined by the gift or the size of the gift. What matters is the belief, commitment and the desire to be an active part of the College’s future. Your support impacts every corner of our campus from scholarships to research funds for faculty, academic programs to cutting-edge technology.

Our donors – alumni, parents, friends, corporations and foundations, students, faculty, and staff - are of all generations and passions but share a common bond in preserving the future of an ever-strong College of Charleston.
