Give

Your gift to the J.W. Fanning Institute for Leadership Development can help communities, nonprofits, youth, and grassroots leaders across Georgia transform their communities. Become a catalyst for leadership through support of our leadership development initiatives.


Giving Priorities

Community Leadership

There is an ongoing need for philanthropic support that will allow Fanning Faculty to work in communities and with organizations that do not have the capacity to pay for leadership development services. Your support for the Fanning Institute will allow us to work in these communities and provide scholarships for Fanning community leadership training.

 


Nonprofit Institute

Nonprofit institutions are essential to the social and economic vitality of communities. Moreover, government services are increasingly provided by nonprofit organizations. Having strong, skilled leadership in nonprofits is vital for Georgia’s communities. With your support, Fanning can offer nonprofit training that strengthens the operational effectiveness, management and board governance of our state’s nonprofit organizations.

 


Peer Court

Athens Peer Court is a diversionary program that offers arrested youth a chance to have their disposition decided by trained teenagers who serve as lawyers, judges, jurors and bailiff. Your support for the Athens Peer Court will help Fanning fulfill its goal of helping students become leaders in their communities.

 


EMBARK

The mission of EMBARK is to increase college access and retention for youth who have experienced foster care or homelessness. Your gift will help grow Fanning’s network of support on campus and across the state that aims to improve the chances for every student to complete a degree or certificate program at one of the over 50 USG or TCSG institutions in Georgia.
