The Division of Development and Alumni Relations is the "Custodian" of all alumni data for the University of Georgia.  The Gift and Alumni Information Link (GAIL), managed by the Division of Development and Alumni Relations' Office of Financial Services, is the central database of record for all alumni at the University of Georgia and serves as the UGA Foundation's fundraising database.  It is a constituent relationship management (CRM) system designed to support the development, donor relations, events, academic, public relations, and school/college programs of the University of Georgia.  The Division of Development and Alumni Relations is charged with keeping biographical and donor information on the university's alumni and friends, (i.e., addresses, degrees, campus involvements, family relationships, contributions, pledges, planned gifts, event attendance, invitations, demographic data, etc.) as current as possible.
