Your gift to the University of West Georgia Annual Fund directly supports students.
The West Georgia Annual Fund is an innovative fund that allows UWG to respond to the most pressing financial needs, while providing the flexibility to seize strategic and necessary opportunities for our students, faculty, and programs across UWG.
Throughout the year, there are opportunities to donate to the annual fund, such as during our annual day of giving. A Day to Give West started four decades ago as a day to give back to the university that gives us so much. Whether you choose to give during A Day, during our annual 5k, or when our student engagement call center gives you a call, you are truly making a lasting impact on students now and in the future.

- Puts students first by offering a challenging and exciting academic environment while also providing the necessary support for student success.

- Sustains an outstanding faculty dedicated to student learning and research.
