"The Black Student Coalition is a space dedicated to provide love and support to Black students on campus. Our members – our Kindred – know the BSC as a space where they can gather, study, share stories, get involved with service projects and simply be together. 

In addition to being a welcoming community, the BSC provides the opportunity for students of color to grow academically, socially and as leaders serving their communities. Being able to work together and stand in solidarity with one another is incredibly meaningful during our time at Davidson and would not have been provided without the BSC."

Last year, Professor Donna Molinek and her husband, Frank, pledged to create a $30,000 endowed fund specific to the BSC if 100 people joined them in showing their support for the BSC with a gift. This challenge was met with more than $60,000 raised from 100+ individuals. Your continued support enhances student opportunities made available through the work of the BSC.


As of 6/30,  2,500 donors have been matched for a total of $62,500. We met the goal of 2,500 donors and secured the additional $50,000 challenge gift. Huge thank you to all donors and our challengers!

The dollar totals on this campaign include all matching funds and challenge gifts.

We are pleased to share a challenge issued by President Carol Quillen and Alison Hall Mauzé ’84, Chair of the Board of Trustees, to increase the impact of gifts made to Davidson for the remainder of this month.

The challenge states that: 

  • For every alumni donor who makes a gift—of any size, to any designation on campus—for the first time this year (July 1, 2019 – June 30, 2020), our challengers will give $25 to support The Power of Education: Supporting Students & Antiracism at Davidson campaign.
  • In addition, if 2,500 new alumni donors make a gift to Davidson before the end of June, our challengers will donate an additional $50,000 to the important initiatives outlined in this campaign.

Education is a critical tool during this moment, and the work for and with our students at Davidson must continue. Your support positions our graduates to be leaders in making our world a better place. Please take advantage of this challenge and amplify the impact of your gift before the fiscal year ends on June 30. 

To make a gift to another area of campus please visit or call 704-894-2680.

Matching funds will be added in to the total dollars of this campaign and we will provide updates on the total new donor count on this page daily. There may be a slight delay as gifts are recorded.
