Giving Opportunities

Invest in people. Invest in Ideas. Invest in the future of Georgia.

Gifts from alumni and friends of the Department of Geography make an essential difference in the lives of students and faculty and the state of Georgia. Keep in touch with us, learn what is exciting and new in the classroom and the laboratory, and make your gift in support of the program and people who gave you your start!

Unrestricted annual gifts provide essential support to fund undergraduate travel to conferences, support student organizations, improve classroom and lab space, and open doors for graduate students to present their work at professional conferences and conduct fieldwork.

Ways of Giving

Endowments, special gifts, and planned gifts can create a permanent legacy, honor a loved one, and build the future of the department. Your year-to-year discretionary gifts enables Geography to capitalize on opportunities as they arise. Named endowment funds may be established in support of any Geography priority, and can honor loved ones, favorite professors, or other individuals. 

Many gifts support our students, faculty, research, outreach, and international programs.
