Giving Tuesday is a national day to pause and take time to support the nonprofit causes that mean the most to you.  While we encourage your philanthropy to any organization, we also trust that the University of Georgia is among your top charitable choices.  This Giving Tuesday, UGA is highlighting three funds that address timely issues, although you are free to support any deserving area of your choice.  You can choose which of the three causes you’d like to support when entering your payment information. If you’d like to support another area that’s not listed below, please click HERE to use our standard donation form.

*After selecting your gift amount and filling in your information, the next screen will allow you to choose your cause.*

UGA Student Emergency Fund

The UGA Student Emergency Fund is available to provide limited, one-time financial assistance to enrolled students who are unable to meet immediate, essential expenses because of temporary hardship related to an emergency situation, such as an accident, illness, death of a family member, natural disaster, or other unforeseen circumstance (like a global pandemic).

As the COVID-19 crisis drags on, the need for emergency support will grow. Private giving can bolster student emergency funds, helping vulnerable UGA students persevere while they continue to pursue their education.

UGA Black Alumni Scholarship

The Black Alumni Scholarship Fund provides scholarship funds to a first-year student who exhibits dedication to racial equality through previous experience, initiative, and creativity in improving race relations in the community. This scholarship is renewable for up to three years, provided the student maintains a cumulative 3.0 GPA.

Donors of $19.61 or more to the Black Alumni Scholarship Fund will automatically become a member of the 1961 Club. Commemorating the year in which Hamilton E. Holmes and Charlayne Hunter-Gault courageously integrated the University of Georgia, the 1961 Club continues their legacy today through its commitment to removing barriers and opening doors. Members of the 1961 Club will receive the quarterly Black Alumni e-newsletter and a window decal recognizing their proud support.

 

Vets for Pets and People

Run by UGA Veterinary Medicine students, Vets for Pets and People (VFPP) partners with local Athens-area domestic violence shelter, Project Safe. As women and children come into the shelter, they often cannot take their animals with them. VFPP offers a temporary loving foster home for the pet(s) with all veterinary and nutrition needs provided so the family may receive the care they need without worry for their pets. The average cost per pet is $300, but can run as high as $1,000, depending on the pet’s medical needs.

In addition to providing compassionate veterinary care and fostering, VFPP produced educational materials for veterinary students/professionals and the public on the link between domestic violence and animal abuse. Since the organization relies solely on donations and the ability to hold community fundraisers was stifled by COVID this year, every little bit helps!
