How to Support the College
Remember or honor a family member with a gift that will identify a prominent campus building. Contact Advancement for more information.
Georgia Gwinnett College Fund
The Georgia Gwinnett College Fund is one of the most important means of support for the College. Supporting this fund ensures scholarship assistance, technology, equipment and the highest quality education possible.
Support Georgia Gwinnett College by helping to build vitally needed state-of-the-art facilities, classrooms and other capital projects.
Whether a scholarship or faculty chair, these gifts keep on giving. The gifts yield a return for GGC to provide a meaningful legacy for their namesakes and are the cornerstone of financial stability.
Corporate and Foundation Relations
Corporations represent an essential part of the GGC community, and never before has your support been more important than it is today.
Corporate and Foundation Relations connects corporations to the college in a way that advances the priorities of both parties, matching your interests with the appropriate projects and programs.
- Schedule a visit to tour the GGC campus and learn about GGC’s innovative model for 21st century learning.
- Coordinate opportunities to network with faculty and students.
- Identify ongoing or upcoming campus programs and projects that share your organization’s goals.
Faculty/Staff “We Are GGC” Campaign
Faculty and staff services and support provide scholarships, enhanced student opportunities, specialized tools, instructional excellence and academic programming that earns GGC accolades. Your gifts also fund emergency grants that keep students enrolled and on track, students who would otherwise drop out because of a few hundred dollars.
As a GGC employee, your support of the college sends a message.
You believe in the mission of GGC.
You believe in our students.
You believe in your colleagues.
You believe that we can make a difference in our community.
Payroll deduction is easy to set up and convenient for you. Best of all, you can make sure your gift has the most impact possible by giving in perpetuity. Set it up once and you won’t have to worry about renewing your gift every year. You can even designate what area you want your gift to support.
Secure options are available to give a gift through payroll deduction, check or credit card on www.ggc.edu/WeAreGGC.
Alumni Give Back
GGC values Alumni Association members as the living legacy of the College, and after graduation, graduates automatically become members of the GGC Alumni Association with multiple opportunities to give back.
Gifts from alumni and others fund student financial aid, new technology and much more. As a recent graduate, you’ve seen the impact of charitable gifts, firsthand. Please consider investing in the future of your fellow Grizzlies by giving back. Your generosity not only helps GGC students, but it also enhances the value of your hard-earned degree.
