When you give to SCAD, you support innovation, creativity and sustainability

SCAD is the world’s leading art and design university, thanks in part to investments by individuals who believe in the value of a SCAD education and who champion our mission to prepare talented students for professional careers.

We gratefully acknowledge the vital role generous donors have played in our success, and we hope you will consider joining our valued supporters in securing a bright future for the university, its programs and, most especially, its students and alumni.

Invest in the future of art and design

The Savannah College of Art and Design started in 1978 with a single defining idea: specialized higher education in art and design. What began as a handful of programs has grown to more than 40 majors with more than 75 minors and certificate programs in Atlanta and Savannah, Georgia; Lacoste, France; and globally through eLearning — making SCAD the most comprehensive art and design university in the world.

Support innovation, creativity and sustainability

Financial support can empower students to create the next big idea. Please choose to contribute to SCAD today. Whether it’s $100, $250 or $1,000 — you can change the face of art and design.

Help grow the SCAD Student Relief Fund

The Student Relief Fund helps students nearing graduation with financial emergencies who have exhausted all other funding options. This one-time distribution is awarded by committee to help give these dedicated students the boost they need to complete their degrees.

Create a named scholarship

Named scholarships can be created with a $2,500 minimum pledge. One hundred percent of your contribution will be distributed the next academic year, providing tuition assistance to one or more SCAD student recipients. Endowed scholarships may be created with a minimum investment of $25,000, and flexible payment options are available. Contact the office of giving for details.
