Fund Participation

One of ACE's goals is to increase alumni of color participation in the Fund for Davidson (formerly known as the Annual Fund). By giving to the Fund for Davidson, alumni reaffirm their support of the college, and these gifts help Davidson maintain its unique character while investing in the college's future. Alumni can also designate their gift to support specific aspects of the fund including individual athletic teams and The Davidson Trust.

The Emergence Scholarship of The Davidson Trust

Created by African-American alumni in celebration of the achievements of Davidson alumni of color, this scholarship supports students with demonstrated financial need, with preference given to individuals from historically underrepresented populations at Davidson.
