Presidents Club Reception 2010

The annual Presidents Club Reception was held Friday, October 8 in the Grand Hall of the Dean William Tate Student Center. Over 800 guests, including UGA donors, faculty, staff and students, gathered to celebrate 225 years of giving at UGA and to honor the University's generous contributors and their annual giving support.

My Favorite Memory on Campus

The University is thankful for its donors who provide generous support of academic programs. This year's Presidents Club Reception to celebrate 225 years of giving we asked donors to share a memory of their favorite places on campus. A space was included on the invitation's printed response card for guests to respond. The responses were complied with historical photographs in a presentation and prominently displayed throughout the event. We received over 200 responses and below is just a sample of their responses. You may view the presentation from the event by following the link on the bottom of the page.

UGA Students Thank You!

More than thirty Student Ambassadors representing units across campus attended this year's Presidents Club Reception. The students mingled with guests and thanked them for their support. Prior to the event, students were asked to complete a survey about their experience at UGA. Here are some of their responses to "What they would say to UGA Supporters"...

Endowment Reports

As part of our continued effort to keep our donors informed of their investments, we provide donors and donor representatives with an annual endowment reports. For the sixth consecutive year the Office of Donor Relations & Stewardship generated endowment reports for all UGA endowed funds. These reports reflect the fiscal status of endowment growth of each fund and are distributed to our living constituents of each fund.

Donald L. Hollowell was a leading civil rights lawyer in Georgia during the 1950s and 1960s whose brilliant legal work advanced many civil rights causes during that era. Hollowell was the chief architect of the landmark Holmes v. Danner case, which in 1961 opened the doors of the University of Georgia to African-American students, starting with Charlayne Hunter and Hamilton Holmes. To commemorate and continue Hollowell's legacy, the University has established the Donald L. Hollowell Professorship of Social Justice and Civil Rights Studies, a position that is based in UGA's School of Social Work.
