South Carolina Honors College

Ways to Give

The success of the South Carolina Honors College would not be possible without the generous support of our faithful alumni, parents and friends. Thanks to you, we have reached our Carolina's Promise campaign goal a year ahead of schedule and, in turn, made a significant impact on our students' educational experiences at the University of South Carolina.

We offer a number of ways to give and we encourage you to learn more about our levels of giving, each of which comes with its own benefits to the donor. We recognize all donors and know we couldn't continue to serve students the way we do and remain among elite honors colleges without your gifts.


How to Give

Contact Jennifer Shepard ( ) in the Honors College Development Office for more information about giving.


Making your gift online is a convenient and secure option that also helps reduce gift processing costs, which means more of the money raised goes where it is needed most. The University accepts American Express, Discover, MasterCard, and Visa.


To give by phone, please call 1-877-349-2106.


To mail your gift, print and complete a pledge form [pdf] to include with your check, credit card information, or money order. Please make checks payable to USC Foundations and include your gift designation in the memo line. Gifts without a designation will be applied to the Carolina Fund of the South Carolina Honors College and used toward areas of greatest need. Gifts should be mailed to:

University of South Carolina
Office of Gift Processing
1027 Barnwell Street
Columbia, SC 29208

Electronic Funds Transfer

An Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) allows you to continually support the Honors College through an automatic monthly withdrawal. To set up an EFT, please call 1-877-349-2106 or print and complete the Electronic Funds Transfer form [pdf]. Mail your completed form and a voided check to:

University of South Carolina
Office of Gift Processing
1027 Barnwell Street
Columbia, SC 29208

Matching Gifts

Many employers offer gift matching programs that can double or triple your gift. To find out if your company has a matching gifts policy, check the University's matching gifts database or contact your benefits administrator.

Planned Gifts

You can give through stocks and securities, via your retirement plan, or as part of a will or living trust. Our Office of Gift Planning can help review all your options and create a gift plan with which you're comfortable. Learn more about gift planning here.
