Gifts of $10,000 and above are acknowledged quickly, accurately and appropriately by a letter signed by the President of the University. The Office of Donor Relations & Stewardship works closely with the Office of the President in coordinating these letters to let donors know that their financial support is gratefully received, vital to our school community, and being used according to their stated wishes and expectations.
The Office of Donor Relations & Stewardship also facilitates presidential letters for all newly established pledges of $25,000 and above. Pledges are acknowledged again when they are fulfilled. Special circumstances (as indicated by the President's Office) are acknowledged as well.
Memorial and Honorary
Memorial and Honorary Gift Acknowledgement
All memorial and honorary gifts receive special acknowledgement by the Office of Donor Relations & Stewardship. Normally, the names of donors who contribute to memorial or honorary funds are shared with the family members and friends associated with these accounts (through letters sent from the Office of Donor Relations & Stewardship) so that they may offer additional gift acknowledgements.
Partners Gift Acknowledgement
An enhanced Presidents Club level, University Partners are individuals whose annual gifts to UGA total $2,500 or greater and support the President's Venture Fund in total or in part. University of Georgia faculty and staff (current and retired) may join the Partners program at a reduced level of $1,500 in annual support with at least $500 designated to the President's Venture Fund.
All new and renewing Partners are acknowledged with letters that are coordinated by the Office of Donor Relations & Stewardship for the Senior Vice President for External Affairs. New members are sent Partners pins with their letters.
