SGA Endowment Fund surpasses $20,000!

Submitted by Rita Elliott (

As 2008 rolled in, so did a number of important contributions to The Society for Georgia Archaeology’s Endowment Fund. January, alone, brought $700 worth of donations to the fund. These much-appreciated contributions continue to add to the fund’s principal, which is kept in perpetuity, generating interest. This interest provides funding for archaeology public outreach, research, and educational projects of the society. Recent contributors are helping the fund grow to meaningful amounts. These include William and Kathy Cox, Carole Griffith, Richard and Sonja Sellers, and Jack T. and Mary Frank Wynn. Thank you all very much for your support.

We can make great strides in SGA with a constant and steady financial base. The Endowment will provide this base for outreach programs that will touch Georgians far into the future, from modest beginnings to broad programs. Don’t be left out of the excitement!
