How to Give

USC Aiken’s fund raising efforts for scholarships and other financial support are led by the Aiken Partnership. The Aiken Partnership was established in 1980 as an affiliate of the University of South Carolina Educational Foundation. All funds raised by the organization are used to further the institution’s quest for excellence in all areas and to support those programs which are not funded at all or are not funded adequately through state appropriations.
