Georgia Southern’s 42nd Annual ‘A Day for Southern’ Community Campaign is Underway
Today, Georgia Southern kicks off its 42nd annual A Day for Southern community fundraising campaign. The fundraising tradition began as a way for Georgia Southern supporters to contribute to the ongoing success of the University.
A Day for Southern Community Chair Anthony Waters is excited about this year’s theme, “Together we’re better.”
“A Day For Southern is a prime example of the spirit of cooperative leadership that exists between Georgia Southern and Statesboro,” said Waters. “Sometimes the university leads and sometimes the local community leads, but together we are really going places!”
Gifts received throughout the campaign are a collaborative effort between faculty, staff, students, retirees, alumni and members of the Statesboro and Bulloch County communities. These gifts support University programs not funded through state dollars such as scholarships, faculty development, championship athletics and cultural programs. Gifts to the campaign also enhance the longstanding and positive impact Georgia Southern has made on local communities.
Last year, donations totaled $2,221,424. Supporters of A Day for Southern are encouraged to give to the areas at the University for which they are most passionate, whether it is a scholarship fund, a college within the University, athletics or one of a variety of student programs and services.
