Gift Policies 

The policies on the Acceptance and Disposition of Gifts, Campaign Counting and Crediting of Gifts, and Naming and Recognition have been developed in an effort to establish a campus wide set of procedures for fundraising at The Citadel.

The Citadel Board of Visitors and The Citadel Foundation Board of Directors have adopted each of the policies to govern the counting, crediting, and named recognition of private giving to The Citadel. Each of the full policies is contained in PDF format, which requires an Acrobat Reader. In case you do not have this reader, you may download one at: http://get.adobe.com/reader/.

Acceptance and Disposition of Gifts
