Why I Give: Derek Hammock

Derek Hammock

Name: Derek Hammock

Position: Director of Business Operations, UGA Athletic Association

At UGA: 1½ years

Beneficiary of his gift to the university: Institute for Leadership Advancement Endowment (Terry College of Business) and the Georgia Fund

Why he contributes: “I believe a University of Georgia education and its many benefits would not be complete without the impact of private giving. I give back for three main reasons: 1) As a way of saying thank you to UGA for the best college experience that prepared me for life after graduation, 2) to enhance the opportunities for current and future students and 3) to help elevate the brand and value of a University of Georgia education.”
