“We roped our children into the process. Thinking about your estate after you’re gone can be uncomfortable. But it’s easier than you think, and getting everything down on paper is liberating!”
– Nancy Juneau (BSED ’82)
Nancy Juneau’s commitment to the University of Georgia is a way of life, so it’s natural that she would want to ensure that her support will inspire Bulldogs for generations to come.
Nancy is a UGA grad (BSED ’82), a Georgia Bulldogs sports fan and the mother of a UGA alumna. Her company, Juneau Construction, helped grow the campus, building new residence halls on east campus. When she became a UGA Foundation Trustee, she made it her mission to visit every UGA school and college, meeting with every development director to learn about what mattered to him/her and why, then followed those discussions with separate donations in support of each and every one. She and her husband, Les, created four Georgia Commitment Scholarships, and she maintains mentoring relationships with the scholarship recipients. “There are so many ways you can make a difference!” she always says.
Underscoring her commitment, Nancy is also a member of the Heritage Society; she included language in her will that specifies a gift to the University of Georgia Foundation as part of her estate plan. “Paying it forward and giving others opportunity. This is what is important to me,” Nancy explains. “UGA made it easy and personal.”
A blended gift combines annual giving with a planned gift, allowing you to see the impact of your philanthropy today while continuing to support the university’s mission well into the future.
