The University of Georgia’s goal is to provide students with a safe and stimulating environment in which to grow academically, get involved and prepare for the future. Generosity from parents and families helps make this goal a reality.
The Parents Fund supports safe-campus initiatives, academic tutoring, career planning, scholarships, leadership experiences and more. In addition to supporting need-based scholarships, donations to the Parents Fund are applied to the Parents Leadership Grants Program. Through this program, organizations from across UGA’s campuses receive the financial assistance they need to make a difference in students’ lives.
