As Agnes Scott College continues to navigate the unforeseen challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, educating our students to become capable leaders, ready to take on the world’s most persistent and systemic challenges has become even more urgent. The college’s enduring mission remains not just relevant today, but critical given the unprecedented times we are enduring.

With additional costs in response to the consequences of the pandemic, as well as the loss of auxiliary and room and board revenue, now more than ever, gifts to the college’s most urgent funding priorities are vital to responding effectively to the present challenges we face and sustaining the college’s future. Your generous support makes an immediate impact on the education that our faculty and staff provide to students and enable the president to direct funding to where it is needed most.

SUPPORTING STUDENTS

For many of our current and future students, the prospect of pursuing and completing an Agnes Scott education is dimming due to increasing financial constraints. With more than 40 percent of Agnes Scott students being eligible for Pell Grants, we are committed to making our transformational education experience accessible to highly talented students who need financial assistance to attain it. Through gifts to the Student Scholarships Fund and the Student Emergency Fund, you're helping keep an Agnes Scott education accessible and affordable.

SUPPORTING FACULTY & STAFF

Agnes Scott faculty and staff are essential to the campus community, investing their time and talent in the college and our students every day. They are often some of the college's greatest advocates, actively promoting our values, supporting our mission and making the college a force for good in the world. Gifts to the Faculty Innovation Fund and the Ray of Light Employee Emergency Fund honor the passion and dedication of our faculty and staff.

SUPPORTING IMPACT INITIATIVES

Impact Initiatives are giving opportunities that President Leocadia I. Zak has identified to target and strengthen the college’s highest priorities. The current priorities are the restoration of Agnes Scott "Main" Hall (the college's most historic building), the Campus Technology Fund (ensures the college has the technology essential for effective and innovative teaching and learning), and the Campus Social Justice Fund (enhanced diversity, equity and inclusion programming and activities).
