Thank you for your support

We announced some very good news this week at UGA - the eighth consecutive year of raising more than $100 million in new gifts and pledges in support of our mission. You can read the news release here.
I am deeply grateful to our alumni, friends and supporters who have given generously to this university, and whose gifts have had a positive impact on our students, faculty, staff and, in many ways, the state of Georgia.
The downturn in the national economy has changed the funding model for public universities. While the state of Georgia continues to support UGA at a very significant level, we must take on more responsibility for identifying and cultivating additional sources of funding to maintain the level of excellence the state has come to expect of UGA.
It is humbling that more than 50,000 pledged financial support to UGA last year. We will not let them down.
