Support the College

Philanthropic giving is, and has been since day one, an essential part of ACS's finances. It makes what we achieve at the college possible.

"So far as I know, this is the only instance of a local government making a grant-in-aid to any American educational institution in the Near East or the Balkans," wrote Floyd Black, the long-serving president of the American College, referring to the fact that the Sofia campus was funded, in part, by the sale of 15,000 cubic meters of timber granted to the college by the Bulgarian government. "It is a striking indication of the good will between Bulgarians and Americans," Black added.

These days, gifts are used to fund scholarships, faculty development, and capital improvements to the College. Donations of all amounts are welcome.
