1. Make a Gift

    In order for Terry to explore and respond to the latest industry needs and offer Terry students a well-rounded college experience to prepare them for their future careers, Terry needs private support dollars. The state has cut funding for educational institutions dramatically in the last five years. The only way to continue providing students with first-rate educational opportunities is through endowments and Excellence Fund dollars provided by generous alumni, friends and corporations.

    Your gift to the Building Terry campaign will impact Terry students every day. Your investment will ensure that future generations are prepared to keep our state and nation competitive and strong.

    Make your gift today and help Terry build a new standard for business education.

    Ways to Give

    Help us build the facilities that students deserve. Classrooms, labs, project team rooms, student organization space, student services, faculty offices and common spaces for events and informal gatherings—all in one central location.

    Give to the Learning Community

    Annual Giving

    Annual giving is vitally important to the future of the Terry College of Business. As state appropriations to higher education continue to decline, the consistent and generous annual support of alumni and friends provides immediate assistance and moves our programs forward. The impact of these gifts ensures each of our students receive a superior education by providing resources and experiences that separate Terry from its competition.

    • Are there different ways of giving?
      The UGA Foundation welcomes gifts in a variety of ways including, but not limited to, stock and securities transfers, electronic funds transfer, matching corporate gifts, land gifts and wills/bequests.
    • I’d like to purchase a large paver. Can I make a pledge over time?
      Yes, please contact Natalie Glenn in Terry’s Office of Development & Alumni Relations for more information.
    • Is my gift tax deductible?
      The UGA Foundation qualifies as a public charitable organization and meets the requirements ofinternal Revenue Code Section 50l(c)(3). All gifts to the Foundation are tax deductible; however, you should consult with your tax attorney/advisor about your particular gift. Our federal tax identification number is: 58-6033837.
    • What is the UGA Foundation?
      Established in 1937, the UGA Foundation is an independent, privately governed nonprofit corporation whose mission is to support the University of Georgia. It currently has more than $700 million in assets and more than $400 million endowed for academic and faculty support.
    • The University of Georgia is a state public institution. Why does it need private gifts?
      The programs funded by the Foundation are not covered by the state funding and tuition that make up the University of Georgia’s budget. State funding is decreasing as a percentage of the university’s total operating budget and the university is committed to keeping tuition and fees affordable. Less than 40 percent of the University of Georgia’s operating budget is provided by state appropriation. Tuition and fees only provide another 14 percent of the budget. Funding from alumni and foundations is needed to help provide the difference.
    • What is the cost of Terry's new Business Learning Community?
      This community, slated to be built in three phases over a total of six years, is projected to cost $140 million. 50% of this project will be privately funded from alumni and friends.
    • Can a pledge be extended over a period of time?
      Pledges for the Building Terry campaign may be made over a three to five year period from the date of the signed Letter of Commitment.
    • How are names on and inside the new buildings determined?
      Major gifts to Terry's Business Learning Community are recognized through a naming opportunity in one of the three phases of construction. These gift opportunities range from $20,000,000 to $25,000. 50% of the pledge must be paid before the name can be placed on the facility.
    • What is an endowment?
      Endowments are often referred to as the gifts that keep on giving. Endowments are permanently invested by the UGA Foundation and the income generated by that investment is used for the purpose you wish to support—scholarships, chairs, supplemental salary support for faculty, research, programs, and much more. A portion of the income may be reinvested each year enabling the endowment to grow and provide a permanent stream of income over time. A new endowment can be established at the Terry College with a minimum gift of $100,000.
    • If The University of Georgia is named in my estate plan, do I need to notify anyone?
      You are not required to notify UGA about your intent to leave a bequest. However,it is helpful for the university’s planning purposes to be aware of future gifts. The Terry College Office of Development can be your resource to ensure a bequest gift is worded to be most useful in the future. You may also be interested to know about the UGA Heritage Society, that honors planned gift commitments.
