8 & 1/2 Great Things About Swarthmore

Thank you for supporting Swarthmore in 2011-2012! In this video, our students share some of the many wonderful things about Swarthmore that your gifts make possible.

Supporting Swarthmore

The impact of our alumni, parent, and friend's generous giving is in evidence throughout the campus: in our classrooms, laboratories, and outstanding library collections; on our athletics fields and in our concert halls.

Students flourish here because of the superb learning experiences they have in classes and labs taught by exceptional faculty. Swarthmore professors are passionate about teaching and learning and they are devoted to inspiring in their students a passion for exploration and discovery. Generous contributions to the College make possible the close, collaborative faculty/student relationships and academic rigor that are hallmarks of a Swarthmore education.

The College's longstanding commitment to access-to ensure that all admitted young men and women have the opportunity to attend Swarthmore-is upheld with donor support of our financial aid program. This program provides for a more inclusive community, one that includes a broader range of perspectives than would otherwise enrich the campus.

Since 1864, Swarthmore has inspired intellectual discovery and growth, and we have also cultivated the moral sense of how to live in a community engaged in the world. Your support enables the College to introduce these values our community holds most dear to a new class of students each year. We thank you for your generous support of these ideals and our shared vision for the residential educational experience we offer.

We invite you to explore options that best suit your wishes and intentions, and please contact any member of our giving staff if you would like more information or to discuss your individual circumstances. Please know that Swarthmore College places the highest priority on protecting the privacy of our donors and holds all donor information in strict confidence. The College does not sell or trade a donor's personal information to any other entity.
