Principal Gifts


Clemson University defines principal gifts as amounts of $1 million or more given in support of the priorities of the University and the Will to Lead campaign.

These generous individuals, corporations and foundations have made cumulative gifts of $1 million or more in support of our students and faculty during our ten year capital campaign. We are deeply grateful to these donors for their generosity and the impact their gifts are making at Clemson.
