Dawg Day of Giving 2023

For 24 hours, the University of Georgia is #CallingAllDawgs to make a gift of any size to UGA. This collective display of Bulldog generosity will turn one day of giving into a lifetime of opportunities for UGA students. While gifts can be directed to any school, college, department, cause, program or area of greatest need, we hope you will choose to support CAES! 

Make your gift to CAES

The goal is to collect 10,000 gifts by midnight on March 30, 2023 – Join Bulldogs everywhere who are answering the call.
