In higher education today, state funds go only so far toward the cost of maintaining Perimeter College’s high quality standards. This means that many important programs need the help of private support for funding, in order for the college to be less reliant on state funds.

Private support comes primarily from five sources: PC (and DeKalb College) alumni, PC Faculty and Staff, corporations, philanthropic foundations and friends. 

The GSU Foundation works hard to create and strengthen corporate and community partnerships.  Such partnerships allow the  GSU Foundation to help enhance academic programs such as the Nursing and GEAP Programs, and community events like the bi-annual Townsend Prize for Fiction, which is attended by nearly 1,000 people.
