Donate Financially

Right now, Lydia's Place is fundraising towards a goal of $20,000 to pay for the on-campus housing at the University of Georgia for the 2017-2018 school year.  A donation of $350 will provide housing for a student for one week. Donations are tax deductible and should be given to “Lydia’s Place.” Surplus funds raised will provide meal tickets for students, reserve for hotels or housing during holiday breaks, and pay for individual needs that may arise during a student's time in college.
