Who Gives?

If Clemson students and faculty are the heart of our University, then donors are the backbone. Through the financial support of donors, Clemson is able to attract and retain the best students and faculty and support them as they discover how to change the world.
The generosity of our donors has led to scholarships and fellowships, endowed chairs and professorships, programs and centers, and much more. These initiatives’ future — and the success of the Will to Lead campaign — depend on the continuing support of our donors.
We invite you to meet some of our featured donors, learn about donor recognition at Clemson and discover how you can make a difference.
