The University of Georgia Press is known for publishing exceptional, award-winning books for scholars, students, and general readers throughout the world. Gifts to the Press support high-quality publications of enduring value. When you invest in the Press’s publishing program, you are helping to create a lasting legacy of knowledge and ideas for future generations.

Sponsor a Book

As a non-profit educational publisher, the Press publishes important, specialized works that cannot recover their costs through sales alone. Gifts and grants are needed to support the publication of scholarly titles to make them affordable for students and scholars. The Press also seeks support for individual books that require special editorial, production, or marketing costs. Gifts of $2,500-$25,000 may be designated to support such publications. Donors are recognized in the books’ opening pages

For a list of current titles in need of funding, please contact Chantel Dunham, Director of Development.

Sponsor an Internship

The Press offers student internships in its Acquisitions, Editorial, Design, Production, and Marketing departments.

Numerous Press interns have gone on to secure jobs at top publishing houses and with magazine publishers.

An annual gift of $10,000 – $15,000 will support a named internship.

We welcome gifts of all amounts.
