Alumni & Friends - Ways to Give
We realize that in addition to your annual gift, you may wish to support specific programs or areas. You may wish to make a donation to a specific academic department or program, support some of our stellar research centers such as The Shaw University Center for Early Childhood, the Institute of Health, Social and Community Research as well as athletics, and our award-winning marching band. Or, you may wish to direct your contributions to our general scholarship program or specific endowed scholarships that are too numerous to list.

A Framework for the Future
Other ways in which you can make a difference in Shaw University’s future is through planned giving and bequests.

|The Shaw University Center for Early Childhood Education, Development and Research, a nationally accredited infant/toddler and preschool program, promises to be a model for professional development and teacher education. The center provides early intervention services including testing, diagnosis and in some cases treatment of children with developmental delays and/or disabilities. The center also allows for field experiences and clinical placement for students at Shaw University who are majoring in education at the undergraduate or graduate levels. Through your financial support, you can have a classroom, a therapy room or even part of the center’s innovative outdoor learning environment named after you. Your donation will not only support the center’s programs, it will also provide the necessary funding to build a strong core, and develop superior quality teachers for North Carolina classrooms.
The Institute of Health, Social and Community Research Building is a Behavioral/Bio-Medical Research Center. It will house 2 major areas of research and development that are bringing national acclaim to Shaw University: The Institute of Health, Social and Community Research (IHSCR) and the Department of Nanotechnology. The IHSCR is dedicated to exploring issues of minority health disparities, and then examining strategies to eliminate those disparities. Research developed at the Institute has earned a reputation worthy of its partnerships with medical giants such as Johns Hopkins University, Duke University, UNC-Chapel Hill, the University of Michigan and Wake Forest University. The research center is also home to scientists and students who are studying the intricate world of nanotechnology including developing research that could change the face of space xploration. Your gift could enhance research and further establish the University as an expert in such fields.
Endowed scholarships offer countless students the opportunity to realize their academic potential by studying at Shaw University. You can establish an endowed scholarship with a minimum contribution of $25,000.00. Interest from the fund is awarded on an annual basis, making scholarship funds available to students perpetually. It is especially critical to our students because even though we work hard to make their education affordable, 90% of the students at Shaw University rely on some type of financial assistance.
