SC State University has announced a partnership with Connect2Give, Inc., an authorized application service provider through the Mobile Giving Foundation, which provides an opportunity for parents, students, alumni and patrons of SC State to donate to the institution utilizing a mobile phone and text messaging. The Mobile Giving Campaign was launched on Saturday, Sept. 11, 2010 during the first home game of the football season.

Supporters only need a $10 donation for the Mobile Giving Campaign. Funds will go directly to the South Carolina State University Foundation, and with Connect2 Give, Inc., organizations retain up to 90 percent of all donations.

Anthony Holloman, vice president of Institutional Advancement for SC State, is exuberant about this innovative effort. “With the Mobile Giving Campaign, we have joined the latest technological advances and moved into an arena that everyone utilizes, which is text messaging,” says Holloman. “This campaign will not only make it easier to donate, but such a small donation may mean additional support and more leverage for our institution, ultimately providing additional scholarship dollars for current and prospective students.”

To participate in SC State’s Mobile Giving Campaign, text BULLDOG to 52000 to donate $10. For additional information, call the Office of Institutional Advancement at (803) 536-8742.
