Student Philanthropy

Our mission is to provide a student perspective on giving back, promote awareness of the ways private gifts impact student life and establish a legacy of philanthropy that enhances the future of Southern University. In giving back to your soon-to-be alma mater, you have the opportunity to create a culture of philanthropy amongst the student body. This tradition is a way of showing your thanks to SU, demonstrating a sense of community and connection, and leaving a lasting impact that reflects the spirit of the class of 2022.

Please be sure that the name on the credit card being used matches the student donors name.

The Southern Foundation student philanthropy gives students a close-up look at the fundraising operation at Southern University along with the opportunity to be involved in our efforts to raise awareness about the role philanthropy plays at our institution.

Student Impact: Student Giving Campaign

Imagine what your life would be like without Southern University. The memories you’ve created, the friends you’ve made, the information you’ve learned and the experience you’ve gained will benefit you for years to come. Here is your opportunity to continue to shape this legacy while establishing your own. By giving back to Southern, you have the opportunity to create a culture of gratitude and philanthropy in the student body. Let’s demonstrate the spirit of giving by supporting the President’s Safety Net Fund. The President’s Safety Net Fund was created to support juniors and seniors who are at risk of not graduating from Southern. This fiscal year, all gifts to Student Philanthropy Council – Student will support scholarships and help ensure a future for Spelman and its daughters. Through your generosity, you will be an inspiration to your sisters to give to the College and make a significant impact on campus through philanthropy.
