The College of Family and Consumer Sciences, previously known as the College of Home Economics, traces its history back to February 23, 1918 when the Georgia State College of Agriculture of the University of Georgia approved the first degree program for women.
On February 23, 2018, we will be celebrating 100 years since this momentous day in our history with the FACS 100: Day of Giving. Giving will kick off at midnight and last for 24 hours. All gifts made in response to this day of giving will go towards the FACS Centennial Endowment for Student Success.
In honor of our centennial, we are currently fundraising to fully fund the FACS Centennial Endowment for Student Success. This fund will provide student support to areas such as student leadership, travel, professional development, and other activities that support and enhance the learning experience for FACS students.
We hope you will consider making a donation to this fund and help us use our Centennial year as an opportunity to provide further resources to our deserving students by making a gift on on February 23rd!
Every gift makes an impact. Leave a lasting legacy and be a part of the 100 or more that give on FACS 100: Day of Giving Day. Your gift not only honors the College of Family and Consumer Sciences’ centennial year - it provides FACS students, for years to come, with the resources to have experiences that will enrich their academic career at UGA.
