Development Mission

For more than 70 years, the University of Georgia Press has published books that make a difference—books that present important new scholarship, raise awareness about pressing environmental and conservation issues, interpret our region, and contribute to the literary culture of our time. By giving to the Press, you can become part of this exciting intellectual journey.

All gifts are used to support and enhance the Press’s award-winning publishing program. Donors are our partners, and the evidence of our success lies in the distinguished list of high-quality books we publish.

Message from Craig Barrow III

As the inaugural chairman of the UGA Press Advisory Council, I have enjoyed supporting the oldest and largest publishing house in Georgia and one of the most dynamic university presses in the South. Our council is now twenty-two members strong, and we have learned through our work with Press staff what it takes to select and publish high-quality books.

Over the past few years, the economic climate has changed tremendously for all State of Georgia-funded organizations. As a result, the Press faces the challenge of maintaining its high standard of publishing excellence by relying more heavily on private gifts. We are, therefore, launching a new initiative to establish a general endowment fund to secure the future of the Press and support its invaluable publishing program.

The UGA Press celebrated its seventieth anniversary in 2008. I encourage you to participate in a meaningful endeavor—making the world a better place, book by book. My family and I can attest directly to the fact that giving to the Press is a rewarding experience. We know that we are helping great books find their way into print—books that educate and change the way people think. By giving to the Press, you can make an important difference in the lives of generations of readers for many years to come.

I would like to ask you to consider a donation to help support this great organization and its wonderful staff. Please be assured that your contribution will be greatly appreciated by all of those involved with the Press.
