Ways to give

SCAD is one of the world's leading art and design institutions, in part thanks to investments by individuals who believe in the value of a SCAD education. We gratefully acknowledge the critical role generous donors have played in our success, and hope you will consider joining our valued supporters in securing the future of SCAD.

Cash gifts

Cash gifts can be made online or by mail. Please make checks payable to the Savannah College of Art and Design and indicate in the note field how you would like to designate your contribution (e.g., unrestricted, general endowment, SCAD FASH).


Pledges are formal statements of intent to gift to the area of your choice at SCAD. With your pledge, you may complete your gift by making regular payments over time. Each payment on your pledge within the tax year is eligible for an income-tax charitable deduction. Please contact the office of institutional advancement directly to discuss your customized pledge to SCAD.

Matching gifts

Matching gifts are an easy way to double or even triple your impact to SCAD. Many companies support employee philanthropy by offering matching programs. Take advantage of your corporate matching program to maximize the value of your contribution at no additional cost. Inquire with your HR department to determine if your company is eligible. If so, request a matching gift form and send it completed and signed with your payment to:

Bequests and estate plan gifts

Bequests and estate plan gifts are a wonderful way to fulfill your philanthropic desires and leave a lasting legacy with transfers of cash, securities or property through estate planning. Please contact the office of institutional advancement for more information.

Gifts of property

Gifts of property are considered on a case-by-case basis dependent on mission alignment, need, space restrictions, maintenance and other pertinent considerations. Please contact scadgifts@scad.edu with a description of the property you wish to donate. Include photographs for faster consideration. Many individuals give gifts of art, book collections, animation collections, furniture and fashion collections. SCAD thanks you for these important contributions and would not have the quality collections and resources that it does without your generous offers of gifts in kind.
