2017 Give To What You Love - SOTA

This campaign ended on February 28, 2017, but you can still make a gift to College of Charleston by clicking here!

Every Valentine’s Day, we celebrate the people we love by giving them tokens of our affection. But what about the programs and initiatives that are meaningful to us?

For the whole month of February, we’re giving you a chance to #GiveToWhatYouLove at your School of the Arts. The month-long campaign will allow you to enhance student outcomes by making a gift to support the "corner" of the School of the Arts that was most significant to you.

Help us reach our goal of 100 donors in the month of February! Celebrate a School of the Arts major, program, or the School of the Arts at large with a gift that is meaningful to you.

By investing in SOTA, you will help provide unique opportunities in the classroom and beyond, as well as the critical-thinking skills and global perspectives necessary for our students to become the next generation of great artists, art scholars and art leaders.

#GiveToWhatYouLove runs from Wednesday, February 1st to midnight on Tuesday, February 28th. We are asking you to do the following three things:

  1. Make a gift to the area of the SOTA that you love.
  2. Encourage friends to give to what THEY love by tagging them on social media or forwarding our emails.
  3. Stay tuned for updates on the campaign via the School of the Arts Facebook page and CofC emails.

 Please contact Laurie Soenen, director of annual giving programs, at soenenl@cofc.edu or 843.953.3418 if you:

  • Don’t see the fund you’d like to support
