Giving to The Citadel
The value of a Citadel education cannot be measured in dollars and cents. As an institution that builds character, educates the mind and develops leaders, The Citadel embraces the timeless values that have served this country well since its founding in 1842.
The Citadel Foundation directs the fundraising efforts of the college, manages the academic endowment, and provides resources to support a variety of programs including academic scholarships, faculty research, athletic facilities, individual academic schools and departments, and vital expenses not covered by tuition or fees.
The Citadel Brigadier Foundation works in conjunction with The Citadel Foundation and specializes in raising money to support athletic scholarships and programs.
Although a public college, The Citadel receives less than ten percent of its operating budget from state appropriations. Other revenue comes from student tuition and fees. Clearly, however, the caliber of education The Citadel provides would not be possible without the generous support of those who believe in the college's mission to develop tomorrow's leaders.
Thanks to the generous support of alumni, friends and organizations, The Citadel will continue to produce principled leaders for the 21st century who will carry on the legacy of service to communities, professions and this nation.
