Georgia State Day 2019

Last year, on the inaugural Georgia State Day, 1,329 contributions from alumni, faculty, staff, students and friends added up to more than $325,000. These gifts touched almost every area of Georgia State and are helping the university continue its upward trajectory.

 

Georgia State Day will return on April 9, 2019. Starting at noon, you will have 24 hours to support what you love about Georgia State. This year, we’re raising the bar and challenging 1,500 donors to join us and make a gift on the second annual Georgia State Day.

 

Your support helps us continue to make a difference in the lives of our students, recruit and retain renowned faculty and enhance our position in the city of Atlanta.

We are overwhelmed by the success we saw on our second-annual Georgia State Day. Thanks to the steadfast support of our alumni, faculty, staff, friends and students, we raised more than $530,000 for scholarships, academic programs, faculty support and student achievement initiatives. We had one day to make a difference, and with your help, we did it. The university’s future is brighter because of you. Thank you!

We did it!
Apr 10, 2019

Thank you for your support on Georgia State Day. With your help, we were able to raise over $445,000 from more than 1,600 donors, surpassing our participation goal of 1,500. We unlocked approximately $200,000 in challenge and matching gifts and are still counting. 

 

We couldn't have done this without the support of our alumni, faculty, staff, friends and students, including more than 200 ambassadors who helped us spread the word. 

 

Check back here for updates as we finish processing gifts and tally final numbers. In the meantime, please enjoy this message from our students.
