Development

Outdoor classrooomClemson’s Development program includes fundraising from individuals, corporations, parents, friends and foundations for major gifts greater than $25,000.

Major gifts fundraising is based on relationship-building and stewardship of these gifts. The ultimate goal is to match the goals and needs of the individuals with the goals and needs of the University. 

Major Gifts – focusing on gifts from individuals.  Each college/unit has a team of Development Officers working to match donor needs with college/unit needs. Additionally, these are Central Development Officers who represent university-wide needs.

Planned Giving – focusing on estate planning with individuals. This includes: bequests, trusts, insurance and other vehicles to help donors maximize their gift to Clemson.

Donor Services
– providing essential stewardship to our donors after their gift/investment. We must demonstrate how a donor’s gift is making a difference for Clemson and our faculty and staff. 

Corporate/Foundations – focusing on gift/investments for the corporate sector, as well as corporate/private foundations to Clemson.
