For more than 85 years, the Institute of Government has worked with public officials throughout Georgia and around the world to improve governance and people's lives. From Georgia's early days as a largely agrarian state with a modest population to its modern-day status as a national and international force in business, industry, and politics with a population of almost 10 million, the Institute has helped government leaders navigate change and forge strong directions for a better Georgia.

The work of the Carl Vinson Institute of Government provides governments across the state of Georgia and even internationally with access to quality, objective technical assistance and training. We support governments large and small as they serve constituents, tackle challenges, and prepare their communities for a bright future.

We invite you to give to the Excellence in Government Campaign and become a partner in serving the governments that serve the people of Georgia in so many essential ways.

Your Generous Gift Will Support:

  • Customized technical assistance and applied research designed to help smaller, more resource-constrained jurisdictions operate more efficiently and responsively
  • Scholarships for local government officials and staff to engage in important professional development that will enhance their knowledge and skills and benefit their offices
  • Educational opportunities for university students—such as internships and graduate assistantships—that prepare the next generation of leaders in public service
  • Global connections that promote economic development between Georgia and international communities
  • Continuing education for Institute of Government faculty and staff so that we can remain at the forefront of innovative approaches to public administration and government management

Your one-time gift or annual gifts of any amount will be used to support the work of the Institute to improve state and local government.
