The 803 Club is a new giving society created by the My Carolina Young Alumni Council that provides all young alumni the opportunity to give back to their alma mater and UofSC’s new alumni home – the Alumni Center! While all alumni are eligible to join, the 803 Club makes supporting UofSC and the Alumni Association especially convenient for recent graduates new to giving back.
The 803 Club, which is inspired by the first three digits in all Columbia campus phone numbers, is also named for the monthly contribution that members make toward the Young Alumni Council’s Alumni Center Building Fund campaign. For example, the minimum contribution for membership is $8.03 per month, which amounts to nearly a $100 gift over the course of a year.
ANY recurring monthly gift to the Alumni Center ending in $8.03 will give you access to this exclusive society (minimum of 12 months of recurring gifts). Directions for how to give can be found here.
When making your gift, please select "Yes, in Honor" when prompted and type in "Young Alumni Council."
These 803 Club gifts will be donated to the Alumni Center. Young Alumni Council has set a goal to raise $5,000 for the Alumni Center project. When the fundraising goal is achieved the council’s name will be included on the Alumni Center donor wall and each individual donor’s name will be displayed on My Carolina’s website.
By joining The 803 Club you will be able to leave your permanent mark on your new alumni home. Your investment will be an incentive to other Gamecocks and compliment the similar generosity of members of the Board of Governors, Black Alumni Council and the Rich-Lex Alumni Board.
