Not only do gifts make a difference, gifts ARE the difference—the difference between an adequate education and the high caliber, academically rigorous liberal arts foundation that has been the hallmark of Randolph College since it was founded as Randolph-Macon Woman’s College in 1891.
Randolph College students do not just sit in lecture courses on biology or psychology—they experiment in hands-on lab environments utilizing first rate equipment and original research.
Randolph College students do not just take dance courses—they study movement with an impressive range of visiting dancers from professional companies around the globe.
Randolph College students do not just read about global politics on CNN.com—they draft resolutions, argue for improved public policy, and vote on important international issues in diplomatic simulations at the National Model United Nations Conference in New York City.
These exceptional educational experiences are available to Randolph College students because you give. The commitment and support of our generous and loyal donors ensures that the Randolph education is the best education, preparing our graduates for continued learning, responsible and compassionate civic engagement, and the life more abundant.
Your gift to Randolph has a direct impact on students’ abilities to learn, experiment, grow, and thrive. Our current needs include:
Gifts to the Annual Fund provide unrestricted revenue to support all areas of the college, from student financial aid to academic resources and technology to enrollment initiatives.
Internships are an integral component of The Randolph Plan. Funding for internships supports the strong program of experiential learning–including career preparation for our students–that makes the Randolph education distinctive.
Endowed scholarships provide a unique opportunity to support Randolph College in perpetuity, by ensuring tuition assistance to talented students for years to come.
Randolph is beloved for its beautiful historic campus. Infrastructure funding helps maintain our iconic buildings and grounds.
Special gifts from Reunion Classes comprise an important component of annual revenue to the College.
The College’s enduring commitment to providing an exceptional education has been insured in part by a strong endowment. Through the generosity of many foresighted alumnae, alumni, parents, friends, and organizations, over 550 individual named funds have been created in perpetuity to support the College’s students, faculty, and programs.
Your gift to the unrestricted endowment gives Randolph the flexibility to respond quickly to timely opportunities or changing demands of today’s academic environment and strengthens our ability to meet our mission for years to come. As of June 30, 2015, the Randolph College endowment was approximately $157 million.
