Palmetto Ring Fund

ring aloneEach year, The CAA is approached by senior cadets, parents, or others to ask for assistance in purchasing their Citadel Ring. With the current cost of a Citadel Ring exceeding $1,000.00, affordability has become an area of concern. Confirmation of need varies on a case-by-case basis. The CAA then reaches out to local clubs to help raise the money to assist the cadet in purchasing the Ring. The CAA cannot predict the sustainability of any external, private efforts, thus we cannot plan for those to cover all cadet shortfalls. When all of these efforts have been exhausted, The CAA has purchased a ring using general funds. As the need for assistance has grown, so has the need to create a more formalized process for approving, funding, and accounting for these Rings and their recipients.

Cadet Recipient Obligations

  • Cadet must contribute at least 10% of the retail cost
  • Cadet must perform 80 hours of volunteer service in The Citadel Alumni Association Office, The Citadel Career Center, The Citadel Academic Support Center, or the Krause Center for Leadership & Ethics
  • Ring must be returned if Cadet does not graduate or fulfill obligations of these terms

 Your gift to the Palmetto Ring Fund will provide a cadet in need the opportunity to wear The Citadel Ring.  A gift of any size will make an impact.  Thank you in advance for your support!
