The University of Georgia Foundation accepts and manages donor funds on behalf of the University of Georgia to enhance academic programs and opportunities at the university. The foundation continues to be one of the most effective ways for individuals to support the University of Georgia.

  • The foundation is overseen by a diverse, 53-member Board of Trustees, all of whom are experienced leaders in business and industry, community service, higher education and philanthropy.
  • As a steward of donor funds, the UGA Foundation has an outstanding record of fiscal and financial management, with an investment portfolio that has consistently outperformed key market indexes over one, five and 10 year benchmarks.
  • From its beginnings over 77 years ago, the foundation today has amassed more than $1 billion in assets, and has grown the annual amount it provides in support of student scholarships, chairs and professorships, academic research and other programs to approximately $50 million.
