The School of Public and International Affairs recognizes and thanks the many alumni, corporations, foundations, and friends who generously support the School each year. By contributing to SPIA, donors are making investments that enable us to continue providing educational excellence by supporting our outstanding professors and top-ranked programs. This honor roll recognizes those who have included SPIA in their estate plans, those who have significant cumulative giving to SPIA, and those who have given at our recognition society levels this fiscal year (July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019).


Changes to SPIA Giving Socities

In fiscal year 2017, the University of Georgia announced a change to the membership criteria for the Presidents Club – the University’s oldest and largest annual giving society. Effective July 1, 2017, the University raised the minimum requirement for Presidents Club qualification from $1,000 to $1,500. In keeping with the University’s call for elevated levels of private support, SPIA is also raised the minimum annual qualification for our 2001 Society from $1,000 to $1,500 effective July 1, 2018 for fiscal year 2019. We are also adding recognition levels to better honor our highest level annual donors and donors who have given $100,000 or more cumulatively to the School.
