Where Your Gift is Needed Most

The Citadel Fund offers every member of the college's collective family an opportunity to have an immediate impact on campus priorities that support and enrich student life. With an investment of an unrestricted gift, the donor can address the most urgent needs of The Citadel and give the college the flexibility to help underwrite its most critical objectives.

The Citadel Fund is an essential component in maintaining the college's academic excellence and fiscal stability.

The Citadel Fund supports scholarships, athletic enhancements, capital improvements, communications and outreach, recruiting and retention of key faculty and staff, community and governmental affairs, and fundraising efforts of the college.  It provides unrestricted funds to The Citadel to cover those vital expenses that may not be covered by state appropriations or tuition and fees.  Nearly $1M is raised annually in support of The Citadel Fund and these unrestricted funds allow the college to meet its most immediate needs.  

A gift to The Citadel Fund will enable us to:

  • Augment and strengthen scholarship and financial aid programs
  • Expand and elevate our leadership and character building opportunities
  • Upgrade classroom and lab facilities
  • Engage and retain the most talented faculty and staff
  • Keep pace with advancements in technology

Annual gifts have a direct and immediate impact on the quality of a Citadel education—past, present, and future.
