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 fi:cs affurdable. 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 the new Terry 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 the 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.
