Why Give To Sojourner-Douglass College

Even though we are relatively young, there are some traditions that are too important to fade away. One of Sojourner-Douglass College's most important traditions is that of giving. Indeed, Sojourner-Douglass' roots lie in the act of generosity of community leaders, the City of Baltimore, the Council of Churches, educators, and community supporters who, beginning in 1972, donated money, time, books and facilities in the founding and early development of the College. Sojourner-Douglass College began with all volunteer faculty and staff. That tradition of giving, which continues to this day, has made a profound and lasting contribution to Sojourner-Douglass' standing as a significant community resource and one of the most unique institutions in the world.

Today, Sojourner-Douglass must continue to rely on the generosity of alumni, faculty, staff and friends, not only to maintain its standards of excellence, but to exceed them. Just as our founding as a community-controlled College create and emphasize a common bond, Sojourner-Douglass' tradition of giving creates a self-determined community of which you can be proud. Because tuition alone does not cover the full range of educational experiences at Sojourner-Douglass, your gift is essential to support the College's growth to provide the resources the College needs to enhance its programs, facilities, financial aid, and continue to attract the highest quality faculty.

We are proud of our progress and our successes and, as such, will continue to honor our commitment to address community needs. But we need your help to do so.

Your tax-deductible contribution will provide scholarships and financial assistance to needy students who otherwise would never have the opportunity for access and success in higher education. Your tax-deductible gift will support scholarships for students who strive to support their household and keep up with their employment responsibilities, but whose ability to fund their education is extremely limited. You may also target your gift to support other areas such as faculty development, program development, or technology support.

Please take a moment now to write your tax deductible check to Sojourner-Douglass College and mail it to the Office of Institutional Advancement, 500 N. Caroline Street, Baltimore, MD 21205. Or you can also donate via our secure online form.
