Gifts at Work
Our donors are philanthropists in the finest sense of the word. Through their help, we’ve been making the world a better place for Georgia State students for decades. Gifts to Georgia State reach well past the university and its students and faculty. Those directed to us also benefit our city, our state and beyond through resulting enrichment in the economy, arts and culture, and health care. Please browse our donor and student stories to understand the impact of giving to Georgia State.
Georgia State University students learn more than academics; they learn how to give back to the community through volunteerism.
