Make a gift to the annual fund.

The Annual Fund lies at the heart of the Rhodes experience. It is the bridge between income from endowment and tuition and what it costs to educate a student at Rhodes. Every student benefits from Annual Fund gifts. Because gifts are unrestricted, we can put them to use immediately in the area most needed.

The mission of the Lynx Club is to secure financial support for Rhodes College Athletics. Each year, approximately 25% of our students compete on one of 10 men’s and 11 women’s varsity teams in the Southern Athletic Association.
