Alumni Participation

Thanks to our alumni, Clemson’s alumni participation ranking moved up to #2! As measured by U.S. News & World Report, alumni participation is the percentage of four-year degree-holders with valid addresses who made a gift to the university for the operational, endowment or capital needs of academic or athletic programs. During the past fiscal year (July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019), Clemson has far exceeded the national average for alumni participation, proving again that Clemson’s alumni are among the most engaged in the nation. If you are an alumnus, your gift counts – no matter the size! Don’t forget to make your gift this year and help us beat 23% – let’s keep climbing!

Ever Loyal

Clemson alumni often wish to establish a perfect, ever loyal consecutive-giving record since their date of graduation. To catch up on missed years, you need to make a current fiscal-year gift plus a minimum gift of $10 for each missed year. Email givingtocu-l@lists.clemson.edu or call 864-656-5896 to check your consecutive giving record.

Answer the Call!

The Clemson University Student Phonathon Program employs Clemson students to ​make roughly 100,000 calls a year to university alumni. These calls include updating alumni information, informs them of what’s going on around campus and gives them the opportunity to make their annual gift. Students truly enjoy speaking to alumni about their time at Clemson! We know when Clemson calls, we can count on you to answer! We look forward to speaking with you soon!
