Gift Giving

Why Your Gift Matters

Public funding for higher education has steadily declined in recent years. It is only because of the increased generosity of alumni and friends that The Citadel has been able to continue its academic growth. Last year it was ranked by U.S. News and World Report as the # 1 best value among Southern colleges and the # 2 best public institution in the South among those offering up to a master's degree. Support for The Citadel strengthens the core upon which that reputation has been built and creates opportunities for further advancement in the years ahead.

With your support, we will:

  • Recruit the best students and faculty
  • Create and maintain academic facilities that are second to none
  • Expand and enrich the academic opportunities available to the members of our community

Your gifts to The Citadel may be designated in one of two ways: unrestricted or restricted.

Unrestricted Gifts

Unrestricted gifts go directly toward solving the most pressing needs of Humanities and Social Sciences. They may be used at the Dean's discretion when special opportunities arise or an unplanned need for spending occurs. These gifts have permitted the School of Humanities and Social Sciences to:

--provide financial support for student research and travel

--bring leading national figures to campus for guest lectures

--expand technological capabilities in teaching and research

Restricted Gifts

Restricted gifts support an area of the college designated by you, the donor. These gifts may be targeted towards the creation of a specific scholarship, fellowship, or professorship; the support of a particular program of study; the construction of a new facility; or many other options. Endowing an initiative in these areas affords naming opportunities.

The School of Humanities and Social Sciences is central to The Citadel's efforts to train informed and principled leaders. We invite you to offer a gift in support of that mission.
