Office of Development

Students at RoddeyWinthrop University has always recognized that “there is no finish line.” There is a constant need to refine, to improve and to anticipate challenges that lie ahead.  In this way, we keep faith with a statutory mandate unique among South Carolina’s public institutions of higher learning: to provide students with a “first-class higher education”, adding features and programs “as the progress of the times may require.” Winthrop continues its commitments to innovation and to high standards. We do what we do at an exemplary level or we simply will not do it. The cliché, however, holds true: doing things well takes time and requires resources.

We invite you to join in sustaining and enhancing the Winthrop Experience.  We know we owe a debt of gratitude to the generosity of those who came before us and provided us with an exceptional institution. Now it is our turn – to honor the past, to engage the present and to enable the future for those who will come to Winthrop to Live, Learn, and Lead.

The Office of Development is dedicated to a strategically designed program to secure private funding for Winthrop University. A strong base of financial support is necessary for accomplishing both the annual goals and objectives outlined in the Vision of Distinction, as well as the long-range efforts reflected in the University’s strategic plan. Programs within the Office of Development include annual giving, major giving, and planned giving, supported by donor relations and research.
