About Georgia State University Giving Day

Last year, during our centennial year, we began a new philanthropic tradition: Giving Day. Georgia State University’s Giving Day 2014 is a 24 hour online fundraising campaign that encourages University alumni, students, employees and friends from around the world to give back and support your favorite areas.

When we all come together to fuel the flame on November 13, Giving Day 2014 will hopefully be the largest community gift in Georgia State’s history! Please join us November 13, 2014, and help us fuel the flame.
