About the Foundation

The Georgia College Foundation (foundation) was established in 1960 to receive, manage, and administer private gifts in support of the Georgia College & State University (university) mission and priorities.  The foundation is a non-stock, nonprofit corporation governed by a board of trustees.  
The foundation serves the university by generating private gifts to support scholarships, academic programs, student activities, campus buildings, campus enhancements, and special events for Georgia College alumni.
With continuing cuts from the State of Georgia and further reductions expected, private support for university students, programs and capital improvements are more important now than ever.
