The Georgia Southern University Foundation exists in order to support Georgia Southern University in its endeavors by raising, investing, and distributing private dollars needed for the funding of programs, projects, scholarships, equipment, and buildings that serve the students and help the University earn and maintain its reputation as one of the most esteemed Doctoral Research Universities in the South. Increasingly, private philanthropic dollars are necessary to supplement public appropriations in order for Georgia Southern to accomplish its goals and progress into the future. Private philanthropic support depends, in part, on the confidence the donors possess in the Foundation’s commitment to the sound fiduciary management of funds, including expenses.
