Endowments provide donors the opportunity to leave an indelible mark on the University and the world.

Establishing a permanent endowment fund speaks to a donor’s confidence in the University of North Georgia and an enduring commitment to the University's mission. By creating or supporting an endowment, your generosity not only impacts students today, but will continue to impact generations to come. Endowments allow the University the ability to plan for the future and to provide students and faculty with the resources they need to achieve their academic and professional goals.

The UNG Foundation invests in broadly diversified assets in an effort to balance risk and return and strives to out-perform industry benchmarks.
