Over $1.2M raised for student programs

In another record-breaking year, the Parents Leadership Council raised over $1.2 million for student programs for the 2024-25 academic year.

The PLC is a service-oriented group of highly engaged parents of UGA students who provide funding to the university through their annual gifts. Once a year, the council awards grants to campus organizations that have a commitment to enhancing undergraduate student life.

The PLC Grants Program started in 2012 with roughly 150 families who awarded nearly $145,000 to 22 organizations. Today, the council has grown to more than 300 families, each contributing $5,000 or more annually and increasing the program’s impact exponentially. Over the last 12 years, the council has awarded nearly $7 million to UGA campus organizations and has become the No. 1 supporter of the President’s Venture Fund.
