Support Student Affairs

The Student Affairs Development Office facilitates and coordinates private support of students through the Division. Many students, parents, and alumni are not aware that nearly 60% of UGA's annual budget is comprised of public and private grants and contracts and the generous contributions of individual, corporate, and foundation donors. Expanding and improving the quality of the University of Georgia's education depends on committed investments by those who are interested in the wellbeing, development and success of UGA students.

We welcome private gifts to programs and services that support students at the University of Georgia. Private gifts benefit students through numerous initiatives:

  • Student leadership development
  • Freshmen transition programs
  • Student organization support
  • Minority recruitment and retention programs
  • Student health services, research, and education
  • Peer education programs
  • Greek leadership programs
  • Student disability resources
  • Need-based scholarships
  • Facility construction

Gift planning is finding ways to make charitable gifts now or after your lifetime while enjoying financial benefits for yourself. Planned gifts are sometimes referred to as "stop-and-think" gifts because they require some planning and, often, help from your professional advisors. Unlike cash donations, they are typically made from assets in your estate. UGA has put together an easy-to-use website to help you with your planned gift.
