IT Support Coordinator, Geology Department; UGA Staff Council President
Beneficiary of gift:
Geology Fund and the Georgia Fund, both unrestricted accounts.
Why do you contribute:
Tuition, grants and state funds only cover part of the costs of our missions. The rest has to come from gifts. I had been giving to a number of charities when I became a Foundation trustee. I saw how hard both the Foundation’s employees and volunteers work for this cause. With this experience, seeing what the Foundation does with gifts (both growing by investment and disbursing, not to mention soliciting), I decided to divert all of my charitable giving to UGA. It is the cause I know best. Most importantly, I get to see the people my gifts benefit every day.
