The Gift Acceptance Committee (GAC) is comprised of the Vice President for Development and Alumni Relations, the Senior Associate Vice President for Development and Alumni Relations, the Executive Director of Development, the Director of Gift and Estate Planning, and the Chief Financial Officer of the University of Georgia Foundation. The committee considers each gift presented to it as per the policy documented in Section 3.0. The committee reviews all gifts regardless of the entity the donor has designated to receive the gift. If the gift is being directed to the UGA Foundation and further approvals are required per the policy, then the Executive Director/Chief Financial Officer of the UGA Foundation will present it to the appropriate foundation committee for their review. If the gift is being directed to UGA, before the gift is approved by the committee, the appropriate unit at UGA receiving the gift and the Vice President for Finance and Administration will be notified by the committee in order to seek their approval.
