Giving to Clemson Chemistry and Clemson University

Thank you for your support of the Department of Chemistry. Within the department, monetary gifts are used in many ways to enhance the educational experience of Clemson students. Your investment impacts our research and teaching, our students and their development, and allows for flexibility to pursue new initiatives and follow up on opportunities to make Clemson’s chemistry department even better.

We are proud to carry on the tradition of Clemson’s founder, Thomas Green Clemson (himself a mining engineer and chemist!) to make Clemson University a “high seminary of learning” for South Carolina and the world.

Thank you for supporting our commitment to all Tigers who pass through our doors.

Opportunities for Giving
