What is Annual Giving?

Every year, we reach out to Carolina’s loyal alumni, friends, parents, students, faculty, and staff for support of the university. The money raised by the Office of Annual Giving supports and enhances the university’s academic excellence, student experience, research initiatives and outstanding faculty. Annual gifts can be designated to all areas of campus; including scholarships, schools and colleges, departments and more.

Why Does Annual Giving Matter?

Thousands of annual gifts enable the University of South Carolina to provide resources not covered by tuition or state funding. No student at the University graduates without having been touched in some way by annual gifts from alumni and friends. Your contribution can make an impact immediately by providing a student with a scholarship, or can have a long-term effect by helping us purchase equipment, renovate facilities, and hire new faculty. Gifts of all sizes make a difference!
