The University of Georgia Foundation enriches the quality of education at the university by supporting scholarships, endowed chairs and professorships and other programs that rely on private funds.
With more than $1 billion in assets, a large portion of which is endowed, the foundation provides an average of more than $75 million annually to UGA to advance its mission of teaching, research and public service.
The foundation was established in 1937. As a steward of donor funds, the foundation has a strong record of fiscal and financial management. Its investment portfolio has consistently outperformed key benchmarks. Growth in the foundation’s assets has allowed for greater financial support of the university’s mission.
