The Coca-Cola Foundation acknowledges Spelman's effort to increase the College's capacity to provide scholarships to deserving students, support and attract talented faculty members and enhance our academic programs. Alumnae contributions to Spelman have long supported those areas and continue to define the legacy built over the last 134 years. This year, the Coca-Cola Foundation has partnered with the College to issue an Alumnae Challenge.
This limited time opportunity will double the impact of your contribution to Spelman. From now until April 11, 2016, the Coca-Cola Foundation will match every dollar (up to $500K) over the amount you gave in the prior fiscal year (July 1, 2014 - June 30, 2015). If you did not give during that period, your entire gift is matched. For example, if you contributed $100 to Spelman during fiscal year 2015, and increase your contribution to $150, the additional $50 will be matched by the Coca-Cola Foundation. As an added bonus, the matching portion will be applied to the same designation as your contribution. If you supported a scholarship fund with your gift of $150, that same fund will be the recipient of the matching gift.
This Founders Day we ask every alumna to Share a Coke with Spelman by maximizing the Coca-Cola matching gift. Renew or make your gift to the College by Founders Day, April 11, 2016.
