University of Georgia Foundation Chairman Ken Jackson

The main goal of the foundation is to ensure a bright future for the University of Georgia—its students, faculty, staff and the communities they serve. It is an honor to work closely with President Morehead to identify the University’s immediate needs. We feel confident that through endowment support, we will secure success for the University of Georgia.”

Letter from the Foundation Chairman

F or the past 79 years, the University of Georgia Foundation has proudly operated under the conviction that, as Benjamin Franklin stated, “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.” Our board is comprised of leaders from across the public and private sectors who strongly believe that higher education’s impact on communities truly knows no bounds. I am proud to serve as Chair of the Foundation and support the University in all its commendable endeavors.

This fall, the University will launch its comprehensive capital campaign with the goal of raising more than $1 billion for scholarships, faculty support, and research on campus. As Trustees, we are committed to ensuring the success of this campaign and will offer our resources to help identify and secure new sources of private funding.

This campaign will have an incredible impact on the University, allowing our institution to attract more talented students, retain distinguished faculty members, and fund research projects across disciplines. The impact, however, will reach far beyond campus. These gifts will allow the University of Georgia to continue to improve lives everywhere.

To our donors, who made this another year of record fundraising, thank you for your unwavering support. We are forever grateful for the trust you have placed in the University’s hands—to lead, to discover, and to unite. Your confidence confirms that a bright future for the University of Georgia means a bright future for all.
