UGA donors break single-day giving record for Dawg Day of Giving

11 Alive News

The University of Georgia’s annual giving day set a single-day giving record for a third consecutive year and surpassed over $13.8 million towards departments and programs across campus.

Donors made 11,711 donations on UGA’s Dawg Day of Giving, which occurs annually on March 26.

These donations hit the university’s goal of 10,000 gifts and passed last year’s record of 11,091. Each of UGA’s 19 schools and colleges received donations and more than $3.7 million went towards supporting the university’s new School of Medicine.

“My gratitude to our donors for this outpouring of support cannot be overstated,” said UGA President Jere W. Morehead. “Every year, Dawg Day of Giving reaffirms that UGA is backed by a vast and deeply committed network of alumni and friends. They are responsible for so much of what makes this institution great, and they continue to propel us to new heights in all that we do.”
