UGA Campaign for Charities raises more than $385,000 in contributions

July 17, 2017

More than 1,600 UGA staff and faculty generously supported the annual Campaign for Charities by contributing $389,416 in pledges and donations.

The annual Campaign for Charities is part of the State Charitable Contributions program, which features more than 1,000 organizations that are eligible to receive donations.

For its contributions during the 2016-2017 campaign, UGA was awarded the Governor's Cup, which recognizes the highest contributions per employee in the SCCP in the category of 9,001 or more employees.

The SCCP is a benefit for state of Georgia and University System of Georgia employees to contribute to the charity of their choice through payroll deduction or a one-time donation. There are 130,000 employees who can participate and more than 1,000 charities are available for designating pledges.
