Last Updated: 04/17/2017

All checks must be made payable to the University of Georgia Foundation and shall in no event be made payable to an employee, agent, or volunteer who is soliciting on behalf of UGA.

The donor should clearly indicate, in writing, how the gift is to be designated. This designation can be stated in the memo portion of the check or in other documentation that accompanies the check.

Wire transfer instructions are available from the Office of Gift Accounting.

If checks are made payable to the University of Georgia or any department therein, the check must be deposited in a UGA account pursuant to Board of Regents policy. The Foundation may request the funds be returned if sufficient proof is provided to warrant deposit in a Foundation account.
