A record-breaking number of students gathered April 13 at Thank a Donor Day to show their appreciation for UGA donors. Coordinated by the Office of Donor Relations and Stewardship, this campus-wide tradition has celebrated the impact of private donations for the past six years.

This year, participants wrote more than 750 personal notes of gratitude, demonstrating the unique ways donors have made a difference in students’ lives. Many schools, colleges, departments and student organizations were represented, creating special thank you messages for their supporters.

Newly elected Student Government Association President Cameron Keen expressed his appreciation for faculty and staff donors.
“Seeing the way that you care about [UGA] and care about the students has been inspiring to me,” said Keen. “And when I graduate, I would love to follow in your shoes to give back to this place that has meant so much to me and has truly changed my life.”
