Ways To Give

At UWG, we are committed to offering students the chance to pursue new possibilities for scholarly achievement, creative expression and service to humanity. We couldn’t do that without the generous spirit of our alumni and friends. There are many ways that UWG alumni and friends can choose to make a gift and donations of any size are appreciated and welcomed. 

You can donate to one of our colleges or schools, to UWG athletics, to the Ingram Library or to the UWG Annual Fund, our primary scholarship-granting body.

Giving to UWG can be as easy as filling out an online form, but you may prefer to send checks payable to the UWG Foundation, Inc. to:

University of West Georgia Foundation, Inc.
1601 Maple Street
Carrollton, GA 30118

UWG Annual Fund

The UWG Annual Fund allows donors to give to the university’s greatest areas of need. Often, this means providing scholarships for students who might otherwise be unable to attend. It maximizes the effectiveness of donations by consolidating gifts of all sizes and distributing them where they will do the greatest good. Besides awarding scholarships, it funds work-study programs and supports academic programs and projects designed to ensure that UWG remains an educational leader. Regardless of size, your gift will make a difference in the lives of our students, will impact the university as a whole and will ultimately benefit the community. 


Student Scholarships

Endowed scholarships are critical for recruiting and retaining the best students – but their full impact derives from the fact that endowed scholarships provide a foundation for success for countless future generations while also building a legacy of giving for the donor.  Find out how you can make a difference in the life of a student on our Scholarship Programs page.


Legacy Giving

Legacy gifts provide future support for the University of West Georgia. Contributions by will, trust, other forms of written designation, life-income arrangements and endowment gifts, all represent forms of legacy giving.  All these gifts represent a powerful and meaningful way for individuals to create a philanthropic legacy for their family, community and the University of West Georgia.
