Giving to the Honors College

We consider gifts from parents a tremendous compliment, as we are highly aware of the investment you have already made in the College of Charleston and the Honors College through tuition! It is our goal that your son or daughter's educational experience is so impactful that you'll want to make the Honors College one of your top philanthropies. Please consider giving a gift in any amount. Strong parent giving demonstrates a belief in the transformative experience we facilitate both inside and outside of the classroom. The Parent's Fund website contains more information on parent giving as a whole. If you would like to give a gift specifically to the honors college, you can simply click here.
