What is A Day?

Since 1982, A Day to Give West has been the largest giving campaign to the University of West Georgia Annual Fund. Thousands of gifts have been made and millions of dollars have been raised to further our mission of becoming the best comprehensive university in America!

The A Day Campaign has evolved and become many things throughout its history at UWG but it remains a day to make a difference, a day to support UWG, a day to change lives and a day for members of the UWG community, far and wide, to celebrate the university’s success.

This year, A Day will take place on Thursday, October 21, 2021. We hope you can join us to celebrate A Day to Give West!

What will your gift support?

You can either designate your gift to your area of personal interest or you can give your support to the UWG Annual Fund where your gift will go to work immediately to help an area of greatest need.

Every gift, no matter the size, makes a difference. Gifts to the UWG Annual Fund support scholarships, enhancements to campus, laboratory equipment, recreational activities, and other initiatives and programs. By advancing our institution in all areas, philanthropy makes it possible not only to instruct and enlighten our students, but to inspire them to make a positive impact on the world. When combined, the impact is almost immeasurable.

Your gift to University of West Georgia creates a legacy of opportunity, provides for educational excellence, and helps invent the future.

Make Your Gift
