What is the Annual Fund?
The role of the ANNUAL FUND in Spartanburg Methodist College’s success is vital. It is the core of SMC’s philanthropic programs, providing an expanded base of financial support in unrestricted gifts year after year. It would take an additional $20 million in endowment to achieve what was provided last year by ANNUAL FUND donors.
Ways to make Annual Fund Gifts
The ANNUAL FUND campaign coincides with the calendar year, January 1 through December 31. To make your giving easier, we are pleased to outline several methods of making a gift:
Simply mail your check, made payable to Spartanburg Methodist College, to:

Gifts of Appreciated Securities
