Campaign for Charities tops $400,000 in donations for seventh consecutive year

Donations to the Campaign for Charities have topped $400,000 for the seventh consecutive year.

The statewide charitable giving campaign enables UGA faculty and staff to support the work of more than 1,200 service agencies, many of which are engaged in the local community. A total of $406,000 was raised, with nearly one in five UGA faculty and staff members participating.

“The generosity of our faculty and staff is inspiring,” said Mary Adams, UGA’s first lady who served as honorary chair of the campaign. “Each year this effort unites the strength and power of many to help our neighbors in need.”
