Augusta, GA – Signs showing support of Augusta University are popping up in yards around the CSRA.

The signs are part of a fundraising effort by the Augusta University Foundation, which is selling the lawn signs for a minimum $10 donation fee and bumper stickers for $5 donation.

According to Nick Evans, who spearheaded the “Save the A” campaign after the school’s name was changed to Georgia Regents University, the money raised will go towards Augusta University’s Greater University Fund to help President Dr. Keel make Augusta University a destination university. The money will help Dr. Keel achieve his views for making the school the best it can be. “This will help make Augusta University what it needs to be,” said Evans, who is encouraging people to stop by on of the listed locations to pick up a sign and show their support.

Checks can be made out to Augusta University Foundation, Greater University fund.

Signs and bumper stickers are available at Sprint Foods, Georgia Bank & Trust, State Bank, WifeSaver, Augusta First Bank and Trust, Simon’s Formal Wear, Surrey Center Pharmacy, Midtown Market, French Market Grille, Jim Hudson Lexus and Phoenix Printing.

Those who purchase signs and/or bumper stickers are asked to post photos of them on social media using #supportaugusta.
