Projects & Scholarships

A number of funds have been established by the Gordon State College Foundation in order to support the work and advancement of Gordon State College.

Funds typically fall into two categories, "projects" and "scholarships". All named scholarships established by the Foundation are endowed and gifts to the corpus of the scholarship help that endowment in providing a healthier pay-out to the recipient. Anyone can make a gift to a named scholarship and gifts can be made in any size. Projects may or may not be endowed. Funds may be set up for a project and once the funds required are raised then the fund goes away. Likewise, anyone can make a gift of any size to a project.

Individuals wishing to create a project or a scholarship should contact the Office of Advancement at 678.359.5739.


Military Memorial Plaza

Gifts of any size may be made to this project which resulted in the construction of a memorial honoring Gordon faculty, staff and alumni. The memorial plaza has multiple components including a wall listing those from Gordon who died in military service, and a portico representing Gordon Military High School and College. Those who give at least $1,000.00 are added to the "350" and their names have been placed on a plaque at the site. Gifts received after construction will be utilized for maintenance and upkeep of the memorial and the landscaping.
