ATLANTA – With an exciting transformation of Georgia State underway, the ‘Burning Bright: The Campaign for Georgia State’ was officially launched on Thursday evening. Many incredible initiatives will be funded by the generous gifts created over the next few years as a part of this $300 million dollar campaign. 

Georgia State Athletics has set a goal of raising $23 million dollars as a part of this campaign to directly benefit the more than 400 Georgia State student-athletes.  Areas of focus include growing support for student success, facility upgrades and women’s leadership.  

Gifts to this campaign are essential to allow athletics to build a nationally-prominent program that matches the greatness of our University.  As the department’s vision statement states: "The Department of Athletics will be a source of pride for both the University and metro Atlanta communities by successfully competing at the highest level of Division I athletics.  Georgia State Athletics will further the mission of the University by transforming the lives of student-athletes and is committed to exhibiting the utmost integrity, sportsmanship and ethical behavior."
