Americus- All Georgia Public Universities have been affected by shrinking budgets the last few years.
Georgia Southwestern is turning to alumni and supporters to help. Thursday night, GSW President Michael Hanes announced the school's $12 million capital campaign. The campaign committee has already raised $6.9 million.
Some of it will be used for new residence halls, but there are many other projects too.
"One of the areas were focusing on in the campaign is building resources for technology," Hanes said. "We recognize that the future is technology and the campaign is going to be a way for us to build an endowment for technology purchases in the future."
School officials hope to raise the money by 2006, the year of GSW's centennial celebration. Georgia Southwestern alumni, President Jimmy Carter and Rosalynn Carter, are the honorary co-chairs for the capital campaign.
The school honored the Carters with the 21st Century Leadership Award. The Carters' three sons and two of Jimmy Carter's cousins are also Southwestern alumni. The school has been an important part of the family's lives.
"So we have been very heavily indebted to Georgia Southwestern University, what it meant to our family and in fact the library here at the college, university is named for my father, so we have a deep involvement as the Carter family," Carter said.
Some of the money from the capital campaign will go to the Rosalynn Carter institute on the campus.
