The generosity of alumni and friends is responsible for much of the University’s progress. Contributions for scholarships and fellowships help students achieve their educational goals. All of Georgia State University benefits from your generosity, regardless of the area in which you direct your gift. Gifts to the University allow it to grow in ways that other funding cannot accomplish.

Private gifts allow for programs that government funding does not or cannot support. Scholarships, special acquisitions, equipment purchases and the creation of endowments to attract and keep top faculty are just a few of the ways private gifts enhance the quality of a Georgia State education. The Georgia State University Foundation welcomes gifts of all types and will work with you and your financial advisors to maximize your tax benefits and the value of your gift to the university.

There are several options available to give to the Georgia State University Foundation. The Foundation accepts cash, stocks and bonds, planned gifts, gifts of real estate, and matching gifts.
