#CougarWelcome 2016

This campaign ended on August 23, 2016, but you can still make a gift to College of Charleston by clicking here!

Join us in welcoming our newest members of Cougar Nation during #CougarWelcome! For 36 hours, starting on August 22 at 8:00 A.M. and ending at 11:59 P.M. on August 23, all Cougars- alumni, parents, faculty, staff, friends, and even students- will come together and welcome our new and returning students to campus by making a gift of any size. Through this annual tradition, we can show our love of our school, its programs, and, most importantly, its students returning to campus for another successful year. 

To be successful, we are asking you to do the following three things:

1. Extend a warm #CougarWelcome -­ Welcome new students to campus by sharing advice, favorite stories, or a move in day memory on the handy pineapple postcard you received. Post it on social media and tag it with #CougarWelcome!

2. Make a housewarming gift­ with a donation to the College of Charleston Fund or Parents' Fund in honor of our students.

3. Challenge and tag your fellow Cougars and #PassThePineapple -­ Encourage friends  and family to make a gift by tagging them on social media, making a phone call, sending them a text, etc. Get the word out!

36 Hours. 360 donors.

All online gifts will be directed to the College of Charleston Fund or Parents' Fund. If you prefer to talk to someone over the phone or make a donation to a specific fund, please call 843.953.5113.
