1% Club Builds the Next Decade of Financial Planning
This year marks the 10th anniversary of the FACS Financial Planning major. We kicked off the celebration at the Financial Planning Banquet on February 4th, 2016, by launching the 1% Club, which allows you to designate 1% of your income to the Financial Planning Fund. This fund gives our students unique opportunities to soar, made possible through your giving.
How can I help?
We hope you’ll join others in launching the 1% Club. As a 1% donor we ask you to designate 1% of your income to the Financial Planning Fund at UGA. The first 50 members of the 1% Club will be permanently recognized as founding members. All other members will be recognized on an annual basis. Join today to be a founding member of the 1% Club.

"The Financial Planning program at the University of Georgia has experienced tremendous growth and success since its inception in the mid-2000’s. I felt that it was important to support the program financially so we can continue to attract top professors and equip our talented students with a unique knowledge base that will continue to keep Georgia as one of the top financial planning schools in the country."
