SUBJECT: UCSD Support Groups
UCSD External Relations is pleased to announce the Support Groups website. External Relations created this site as a service to donors and friends who wish to learn more about Support Groups, develop new Support Groups and allow for on-line registration renewal for these groups.
A support group is any group, organization, foundation, or association other than a Campus Alumni Association or Campus Foundation (a) whose primary purpose is to provide assistance through fund-raising, public outreach, and other support for the University's mission, or (b) whose representatives or activities make the entity indistinguishable from the University itself, or (c) that acts as an agent of or intermediary for the University. Support groups typically operate with some affiliation or collaboration with the University to raise gift funds and/or provide public support for the teaching, research, patient care, and public service programs of the University. Support Group Operations (SGO) was created to assist UCSD campus support group leaders with the operations of their organizations and to foster a stronger working relationship with those groups.
If you would like to review the on-line site, the web address is http://er.ucsd.edu/supportgroups/default.htm.
Please be aware that the UCSD External Relations website is under development. You can expect to see changes in the "look" of these pages in the future, and enhancements to their functionality.
We hope you, and those who support UCSD, will find this a useful and convenient service. If you have questions or comments, your feedback is greatly appreciated and can be directed to my attention as noted below:
