Charitable Giving

<< Return to Chapter 15: General Policies

Swarthmore serves the community actively through its own education, research, and community service missions.

Because of our not for profit status and our primary role of service to the community, it is inconsistent with Swarthmore's charter and policy to use College funds to make monetary contributions to other organizations or causes, including contributions for attendance at non Swarthmore charitable fund-raising events.

These guidelines are not intended to discourage individuals from making contributions of their own funds to charitable causes of their choice.
