Giving Day Begins In

The Rhodes State Foundation has set the stage for an epic competition to renew the funding for two of the College’s student scholarships. Faculty, Staff, and Retirees of Rhodes & LTC are invited to give toward the Rhodes State College Faculty & Staff Student Scholarship! Rhodes and LTC Alumni and students are invited to give toward the Alumni Legacy Scholarship! The scholarship “team” that raises the most support on Giving Day will bring home the win!

What is Giving Day?

Giving Day is a 24-hour fundraising effort that aims to unite alumni, friends, faculty, staff, and students toward a common goal. 

What Will My Gift Accomplish?

The 2024 Giving Day goal is to renew the funding for the Alumni Legacy Scholarship and the Rhodes State Faculty and Staff Student Scholarship. Both funds have been used for decades to support students, and we need your help to make sure they keep changing lives in the years to come!

Can You Give Me Another Reason to Give?

We CAN! Both the alumni/student community and faculty/staff community have a great group of leaders who WANT TO WIN! The Outstanding Alumni and Alumni Circle of Excellence have come together to offer a matching gift for their team! The Board of Trustees, Foundation Board of Directors, Cabinet, Deans, and Faculty & Staff Leadership have also come together to offer a matching for their team!

That means your gift can be doubled, and the team that best takes advantage of the matching gift can win when you click "Give Now!"
