Support for UGA Is Stronger Than Ever/_resources/uploads/images/UGA_FundRaising2016-700x388.jpg
The University of Georgia community—yet again—has demonstrated its unyielding dedication to elevating this great institution to new heights of excellence. For the third consecutive year, UGA has set a new record in fundraising, bringing in $183.8 million in new gifts and pledges during fiscal year 2016. This year’s historic total represents a 28 percent increase over the previous year’s record of $144.2 million.
This significant accomplishment was made possible by the high levels of commitment and teamwork that characterize the UGA community. I am deeply appreciative to our alumni and friends for their unwavering generosity and loyalty. I also am grateful to our development team; the UGA Foundation Trustees; leaders of our schools, colleges, and other units; and our outstanding faculty, staff, and students.
As we celebrate this remarkable achievement and look forward to launching the public phase of the comprehensive capital campaign in November, I remain confident that the best days of the University of Georgia still lie ahead.
