It’s that time of year when students begin calling all UGA alumni to update records, find out what is going on in the lives of alumni and importantly, ask for annual contributions to the Georgia Fund in support of university-wide initiatives. In the coming weeks, you can look forward to a UGA student calling you to ask for your annual donation.
This year, we invite you to DESIGNATE a portion of your gift to the Terry College of Business through the Terry Annual Fund. Your gift to the Terry College of Business is crucial to the strength of Terry’s future. By designating a portion of your gift you are directing money to the specific programs and departments that made an impact in your education and career.
Of course, any gift to the Terry Annual Fund is also a gift to the Georgia Fund—it is simply ear marked for the college you love. When designating your gift you will enjoy all of the society memberships and benefits that come along with a gift to the Terry Annual Fund, AS WELL as to the Georgia Fund. So when you get the call, answer with “Terry!”
Here are ways your annual dollars are hard at work at the Terry College of Business:
Helps one undergraduate student experience the Leonard Leadership Scholars program.
20 gifts of $250 = $5,000
Makes it possible for one student to study overseas.
12 gifts of $500 = $6,000
Affords the Music Business Program a promotional video to recruit the best future students and help secure jobs in the music industry for current students.
As you can see, the collective impact of many gifts keeps this college strong. Of course, you can always make a gift by visiting www.terry.uga.edu/makeagift any time, but students look forward to speaking with you by phone soon! Don't forget to tell them all about what you have accomplished since your college days at Terry...you will encourage these undergraduate callers and we can even use your story to inspire students to come!

The purpose of Terry Talks is to connect younger alumni with alumni who have experienced successful careers in different areas of expertise. These events will serve to develop younger alumni and connect them with mentors in those professions in which they seek to do business.
What is Terry Talks?
Terry Talks programs are small events (15 people) for young alumni of the Terry College of Business. These events complement the larger gatherings hosted by the Young Alumni Board (YAB) each year.
Programs are industry focused. (Examples include Real Estate, Media and Marketing, Private Wealth Management and Finance.)
Where and when are Terry Talks?
Programs are hosted by Terry College alumni in their homes, offices, businesses or restaurants. Alumni hosts serve as the main “speaker” of the discussion and encourage participation in the conversation among all participants. Alumni hosts cover any expenses associated with the program.
What are people saying about Terry Talks?
“Hosting a TerryTalks event in my home was a great experience. It gave me an opportunity to meet a new generation of alumni interested in real estate and share with them my many years in the industry. In doing so, I felt a great sense of pride in giving back to the Terry College. It was minimal effort on my part as the Young Alumni Board handled many of the responsibilities. I encourage other alumni to consider helping the College and our fellow alumni in this way.” Joe Terrell, BBA 1974, Highgate Partners
How does a Terry alum participate in Terry Talks?
We’re looking for Terry College alumni hosts for our 2010-2011 Terry Talks programs. If you are a successful alum with interesting experience in your field, and you’re interested in working with young alumni, please contact YAB member Russ Johnson (BBA 2003) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
