We help you do more than make a gift; we ensure that your gift makes all the difference.
WHERE WE ARE Scholarships for high-achieving students. Faculty support for professors whose teaching transforms. Programmatic funding for the kind of engaged, experiential learning that distinguishes Guilford College. Few giving opportunities offer a more immediate impact than the Guilford College Annual Funds. And few are so effective at creating persistent momentum forward. Our donors want to be a continued part of our story, and they understand that consistent support helps make possible the transformation that happens on our campus day after day.
WHERE WE WANT TO GO
An entire community moving toward the same goal together is powerful. Our goal is simple: To inspire every person connected and indebted to Guilford College to join our family of annual donors by making a gift each year.
From keeping the lights on to creating those light bulb moments, from feeding their appetite to satisfying their craving for knowledge, from making the campus a sight to behold to giving them a vision for the future that will inspire them well beyond graduation day — Annual Funds support means more to the day to day learning experience than any other kind of contribution. Whether you view yourself as a sustainer of the Guilford experience or a builder of new things to come, every contribution is critical. When you give to Annual Funds, you do more than make a gift; you make all the difference.
1837 — the year of our founding and the beginning of a long and meaningful history of changing lives through Quaker-based education. The number is significant to us because it represents not only where we came from, but also just how far we can go. With your annual gift of $1,837 or more to the President's Club, you’ll join a special group of supporters who help us bridge our proud past to an exciting future for Guilford College. But even more significant is the impact you’ll make for each and every Guilford student, and the impact that they will be able to make — because of you.
