GSW surpasses Day of Giving goal raising more than $33,000 for students and facility improvements

GSW’s second annual Day of Giving, which ran midnight to midnight on Thursday, September 10, exceeded the initial goal of $25,000 netting $33,700.50 for the University.

In just the second year of hosting a Day of Giving, the total number of donors increased by nearly 65%. The 24-hour giving challenge was mostly focused online and through a social media-driven effort to bring the campus community together in an effort to raise money and showcase Hurricane pride. Last year's effort raised nearly $19,000.

"Each year, I am blown away by the energy and enthusiasm on our Day of Giving," said GSW President Neal Weaver, PhD. "I love seeing the Hurricane community come together to make a difference in the lives of students and the future of Georgia Southwestern. I am so grateful for the hard work of the committee and the unwavering support from our neighbors. Your contributions will continue to improve the University and enhance student success."

On this single-day campaign, Hurricanes around the country-alumni, community members, parents, friends, neighbors, faculty, staff and students-made gifts ranging from $5 to $5,000. Contributions were mostly directed to the Day of Giving's six funds which supported athletics, scholarships, student success in either academics or engagement, and facility improvements, among others.

Twenty freshmen named to the President Jimmy Carter Leadership Program

GSW has named twenty freshmen to the President Jimmy Carter Leadership Program, established to honor the legacy of GSW alumnus and former U.S. President Jimmy Carter. These students from Georgia, Alabama and Florida are the second group to enter the program since its creation in 2019.

"Again this year, the applicants for the Carter Leadership Program were outstanding high school students with demonstrated academic and leadership excellence," said Lynda Lee Purvis, GSW vice president emerita for Academic Affairs and program director. "The Applicant Review Committee comprised of faculty, staff, and current Leadership Program students, evaluated each of the 52 applicants in detail before determining the final 20 students. I am so pleased with the quality of this new group and they are shaping up to be true campus leaders."
