Ten years and counting

The Governor’s Cup, presented for statewide generosity in charitable giving, has been awarded to the University of Georgia for the 10th year in a row. Hoisting the trophy are Vice President for Instruction Laura Jolly (left), who chaired last year’s successful Campaign for Charities, and Dr. Barbara Schuster, campus dean of the MCG/UGA Medical Partnership and the 2011 campaign chair.

The Governor’s Cup recognizes the highest contributions per employee in the State Charitable Contributions Program in the category of 9,001 or more employees. Last year, UGA faculty and staff contributed $435,000 to service agencies through the Campaign for Charities.
