Spirit of Giving

The Spirit of Giving is an effort to share the histories behind the many individuals and organizations who have generously contributed endowment funds to the University of South Carolina Aiken. This webpage of brief biographies has been assembled to provide scholarship recipients, parents and other interested parties with information about our donors. Scholarships, program accounts and endowed chairs are more than just dollars and cents. They are a way for donors to share their personal beliefs, characteristics and aspirations with students, faculty and staff, and they are a way to give back to the university that gave so much to them.

This list is a work in progress. The Spirit of Giving is in its initial phase and will eventually include all donors who wish to be listed. For more information, contact the USC Aiken Advancement Office at advancement@usca.edu or 803-641-3448.
