PAWS Reception recognizes annual Philanthropy at Work Society members who are faculty, staff, and retirees at UGA who give $1+ to the university during the fiscal year. It also celebrates faculty, staff, and retirees who have documented a planned gift.
The reception is held each fall and recognizes the previous fiscal year of giving. This event is meant to be a fun party for our UGA family and includes simple decoration with a changing theme, fun activities, and remarks from the president. We always look forward to the next PAWS Reception and the relaxed, celebratory atmosphere that it brings!
This event honors faculty, staff, and retirees for going above and beyond their normal duties by giving to UGA. It is also a way to promote the impact and significance of giving to those who are lapsed donors or who have never given.
