EXPERIENCE UGA GA FUNDER CAMPAIGN

Experience UGA has just entered into our month-long fundraising campaign with the goal of raising $10,000 for experiential learning opportunities through our trips for UGA and Clarke County students. Funds from this campaign will go towards continuing to support the educational field trips to UGA provided by our program for all 13,000+ Clarke County students (PreK-12). Children who begin pre-school in a Clarke County school will have at least 14 opportunities to visit the university by the time they graduate. The vision is two-fold: first, students’ learning will be enhanced through hands-on, curricular-based activities in a university environment; and second, Clarke County students will be exposed to a broad array of opportunities and come to view post-secondary education as an attainable option for their future. Each week we’ll be spotlighting several of our amazing trips that have a direct, positive impact on the kids in our community on our social media accounts, so be sure to follow of Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages for updates. 

Just $5 can send a Clarke-County School District student on an Experience UGA field trip. Click on our Donate Now button to check out our GA Funder page, see our giving levels, and donate!
