Georgia Southern University Foundation, Inc.

The Georgia Southern University Foundation raises, invests and distributes private dollars needed to fund the programs, projects, scholarships, equipment and buildings that help Georgia Southern University earn and maintain a reputation for excellence.

Tuition, fees and state allocations cover the “basics,” but are not sufficient to provide for the many “extras” that add quality and value to a university education and allow research and regional service to flourish.

The Foundation also provides support to divisions within the University to fund special needs. These include many instructional projects, cultural outreach initiatives, admissions programs, international student activities, the Georgia Southern University Southern Pride Marching Band, and more. The Foundation supports the fundraising needs of the Georgia Southern University Museum, The Garden of the Coastal Plain, the Georgia Southern University Center for Wildlife Education and the Lamar Q Ball Jr. Raptor Center, the Performing Arts Center, and other facilities and programs which serve the campus and community.

The Georgia Southern University Foundation, Inc. is a not-for-profit organization established in 1962 to raise and manage private dollars to meet the needs of Georgia Southern University that are not funded through state allocations.

The Georgia Southern University Foundation, Inc., is qualified by the Internal Revenue Service as a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) corporation.
