The University of Georgia not only met its fundraising goal for the Campaign for Charities, it exceeded it, collecting a total of $437,264.56 in the annual statewide campaign to assist service agencies. The goal had been $435,000.
“The success of this annual effort demonstrates our compassion for those in need and our commitment to the well-being of our community,” said Barbara Schuster, dean for the MCG/UGA Medical Partnership campus, who chaired the campaign.
More than 21 percent of the university’s faculty and staff contributed to the campaign. While the participation rate is down slightly from the previous year, UGA’s 2,245 donors increased their giving levels.
