Ways to Give

Your annual giving plays a major part in the success of Southern College of Optometry and The Eye Center.

Give a Gift


Whether you support student scholarships, patient care services or our effort to improve our academic and clinical facilities, your generosity enables us to succeed. Your support is critical in shaping the positive outcome of all that we accomplish.

Your support means the difference between SCO offering a good optometry program and SCO being a great school of optometry. We believe this success is evident in our alumni, from those who lead our professional organizations at all levels, to recent graduates who return to practice in communities across America using the professional training and expertise they received at SCO.

When our graduates successfully transition into the profession of optometry, it’s a positive reflection on their alma mater.

Southern College of Optometry will work with you to provide you with giving opportunities that best meet your desire to support the college.

Call or email SCO’s Office of Institutional Advancement to make other arrangements for gifts, including information about endowing scholarships, estate planning, charitable bequests and other giving options.

Your support is essential to improve access to the unique expertise that SCO and its Eye Center has to offer our students, our patients and our outreach to people in Memphis and around the world. Your generous tax-deductible gift provides resources to fund initiatives that make SCO competitive in optometric education. Your dedication to improving the eye health and vision of patients and supporting higher education demonstrates our shared commitment to our profession.


If you would prefer to make a recurring gift via credit card, please contact the SCO Office of Institutional Advancement at (901) 722-3216 or (800) 238-0180 ext. 4.
