Donate to the Parker College of Business


The Parker College of Business is preparing the next generation of business leaders to build and drive an economy that benefits the citizens of Georgia, the nation, and the world.

To effectively mold the business leaders of tomorrow, we must provide the students of today with the best faculty, technology, facilities, and learning opportunities. With the help of private support, we can:

  • Earn national recognition. The Parker College of Business has been recognized in The Princeton Review, CEO Magazine and U.S. News and World Report and we want this success to continue.
  • Expand program initiatives.  Activities beyond the classroom in undergraduate and graduate programs give all students’ real-world fundamentals and exposure to innovations that will shape tomorrow.
  • Increase scholarship support.  More scholarship dollars provide greater access to qualified students.
  • Invest in faculty. Increasing faculty support allows Parker College of Business to attract and retain nationally prominent scholars distinguished by excellence in teaching and research.

Gifts to the Parker College of Business are vital because they provide the funds that close the gap between tuition and the total cost to educate a student. Tuition and fees cover only half the cost of a student’s education.  Annual gifts—no matter the size—add up to an important income stream that underwrites school activities and ensures the continued excellence and fiscal health of the Parker College of Business.  Every gift makes a difference in its own right and helps to inspire other donors.
