GIVING DAY 2020

Giving Day is a 24-hour campaign, inspired by our Founder’s decision and dream to establish a College. In 1874, WPJ knew that time, money and community were needed to accomplish his goal. This is still true today and the PC Community is inspired to join together to ensure the future of our beloved institution. Students, Alumni, Faculty, Staff and Friends, join together on May 29th as one family!

Blue Hose for Blue Hose

How Do I Make A Gift?

To donate during giving day, please visit Giving Day 2020 on May 29 beginning at 12 a.m. You may also call a member of the Advancement staff if you would prefer to make a gift over the phone starting at 8 a.m.

Where Should I Designate My Gift?

WPJ | Giving Day | Giving | Presbyterian College | Clinton SC

“I have at last set my heart on a plan, the complete fulfillment of which I desire to commemorate my twentieth anniversary at Clinton. It is nothing more nor less than the establishment of a College at Clinton. It will take a vast outlay of time and money but it can be done and, God willing, it shall be done. I have been thus explicit because I have hereby resolved to establish a college in the town of Clinton.”

– WILLIAM PLUMER JACOBS, 1874
