Support Our Mission

Our work would not be possible without the support we receive from individuals, organizations, and foundations. We invite you to support Georgia College Leadership Programs as we prepare the next generation of leaders for the public good.

Georgia College & State University will use your investment to support our students and advance our mission. Your gift could: 

  • Provide scholarships for students to enroll in the Leadership Academy, equipping them for leadership at Georgia College and beyond. 
  • Fund a student's Leadership Practicum, integrating theory and practice and creating mutual benefit with community organizations. 
  • Propel the Georgia Education Mentorship Program into its third decade, ensuring the future of Georgia's next generation of leaders.
