Soaring to Victory Capital Campaign

Total Capital Campaign Goal: $36,625,000


“You cannot fly like an eagle with the wings of a wren.” - William Henry Hudson

We are faced with a tremendous generational opportunity. Not since Erk Russell’s “dirty dozen,” the group who led the effort to put Georgia Southern Football on the map in 1982, have we had an opportunity to impact the entire athletics program, the university, the community and the region in such a meaningful way.

We are embarking on this exciting $36 million campaign with the goal of achieving our mission in five phases over eight years. The successful completion of the campaign will ensure the attainment of “Rings and Diplomas” for all student-athletes and will guide the program for the next 25 years.




When Freedom spans his wings and takes flight above Paulson Stadium at Eagle Football home games and over our newly confirmed graduates in the spring, our pride soars with him. Just as Freedom stretches to reach new heights, our student-athletes are asked to do the same—to win on the field, in the classroom and in life. The tremendous pride that we feel is for our school, and for them.

Yet our student-athletes need our help to stretch their wings and soar. Such a task requires support to ensure their ascent to victory. The Georgia Southern University Athletic Foundation has embarked on a critical and timely mission. The $36 million Soaring to Victory campaign is now underway. It is time to transform the face of Georgia Southern athletics for future generations and we need your help today!

Future successes rest on today’s vision. A closer look at the athletic program’s operations and facility needs tells it all. But, great facilities and program improvements do not grasp all of the athletic department’s goals. The quest for championships is fundamental to the program, but winning in the classroom completes its mission of “Rings and Diplomas,” the opportunity for a championship ring and a college diploma for each one of our promising and talented student-athletes.

We know we can reach our campaign goals with your help. Please take the time to read more about the Soaring to Victory campaign. The future dreams and aspirations of our student-athletes depend on it. Soar on!
