Only 3,270 left to reach our goal of 5,000 by April 11, 2010.
Sisterhood brings together great souls, minds and hearts. This Founders Day, we not only celebrate the Spelman sisterhood, but we will also honor the legacy and vision of Sophia B. Packard and Harriet E. Giles.
We need your support to reach this milestone. As part of the Every Woman… Every Year! Campaign, it is our goal to show the world the power of what Spelman women can accomplish. An anonymous donor has agreed to contribute $300,000 to Spelman College, if we reach 5,000 alumnae donors by Founders Day on April 11th. We need your support to help us reach this milestone.
By making a gift in honor of Founders Day, you will help our students become leaders in the arts, their communities, and future professions. Before they can give their talents to the world, we must give back to Spelman College. Founders Day is a time for us to show our support for the unique bond we share with our Alma mater.
Expand your impact. This challenge will significantly multiply the value of your own gift - and ensure access to a transformative education for our 2,000 young women. Become one of the Spelman 5,000 today.
“I had a lot of ‘mothers’ at Spelman who wanted me not just to follow in their footsteps but go beyond.
They encouraged me to study in Africa, saying, ‘You’re the person who can make a change.’ Spelman teaches you to listen first, explore and research, then do something about it. I used that model to develop Afro-lution Magazine, and it guides my work at MTV. Now I try to give to Spelman every month, because I owe it to the women who helped me to do the work I’m doing now.”
