Change the face of art and design

SCAD is pleased to announce a $10 million endowment challenge match over the next three years. Your new or increased gift toward any area of the endowment will be matched two-to-one (match applied directly toward the general endowment).

Every contribution makes a difference and will have a positive impact in the lives of SCAD students, one person's giving spirit can inspire others and make an impact on generations that follow.

Innovation, creativity and sustainability 

The Savannah College of Art and Design started 36 years ago with a single defining idea: specialized higher education in art and design. What began as a handful of programs has grown to 41 majors with more than 60 minors in Atlanta and Savannah, Georgia; Hong Kong; Lacoste, France; and globally through eLearning — making SCAD the most comprehensive art and design university in the world.

"I've certainly been helped throughout my career … and I think we have to pass it on to others."
