University Advancement

Give Now

Welcome to the Office of University Advancement at Athens State University! In our role as ambassadors for the University, we are committed to building meaningful relationships that are mutually beneficial between alumni, friends, and the community.

The continued success of Athens State University as an institution focused on changing the lives of our students is dependent on the support of individuals, corporations, and other entities that provide philanthropic support. The University has built a solid reputation based on quality instruction and affordable tuition allowing for maximum financial impact from Foundation scholarships. Other support, whether unrestricted gifts or special designations, provides flexibility that ensures pressing needs of the University are met.

Our future success, both as a Foundation and an institution, is inextricably tied to your support. We value your contributions as well as your friendship. We encourage you to contact our office if we can answer any questions or address any concerns you might have.
