CAES Student Philanthropy Council
The mission of the Student Philanthropy Council is to elevate student awareness about the importance of philanthropy at UGA, to educate students on the impact of private giving at our college, and to promote student involvement in philanthropic initiatives at CAES.
The Student Philanthropy Council (SPC) is a group comprised of undergraduate and graduate students in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (CAES) who play an integral role in outreach efforts for the CAES Office of Development and Alumni Relations. The goal of this group is to help build a culture of philanthropy within CAES's student body in order to ensure that our students become engaged and loyal alumni donors.
