Student Philanthropy Council

The mission of the Student Philanthropy Council (SPC) 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 the Terry College.

The Student Philanthropy Council is a group comprised of undergraduate students in the Terry College of Business who play an integral role in outreach efforts for the college's Office of Development and Alumni Relations. The goal of this group is to help build a culture of philanthropy within Terry’s student body in order to ensure that our students become engaged and loyal alumni donors.
