Paine College will hold Build it Back: Rally to Save Paine College on Tuesday, November 10th at 6:00 p.m. in the Gilbert-Lambuth Memorial Chapel.

The College is asking the Central Savannah River Area’s (CSRA) residents, alumni, faith-based, business and corporate communities and friends to support Paine College as it faces tremendous financial challenges as the College works towards long-term sustainability.

“Together we can build back an institution that has educated thousands of men and women who have greatly contributed to the local community and to the world,” said Dr. Samuel Sullivan, Interim President.  “It is crucial that alumni, friends and the community continue to support the College. No matter how much one gives, the gift will have an immediate impact on the College.”

This fundraising event will feature alumni and friends of the College sharing what makes Paine an integral part of the Augusta area, the State of Georgia, and beyond. Attendees will be able to make a contribution to Paine College at the event.  Contributions can be made on the Paine College website at
