William G. Hammond, CFP® recently made a donation to the University of West Georgia Foundation to provide financial support for UWG Newnan. The donation will be used to fund facility enhancements and a portion of the donation will be placed in the Newnan Center Facilities Endowment.
“This was a great way for me to give back to the community,” says Bill. “I feel if you were born and raised in Newnan, moved back after college and raised your family in Newnan, earned your living in Newnan and will retire in Newnan you should feel an obligation to give back and create an even better place for the next generation. I wanted to do something for the city of Newnan and the University of West Georgia. My gift accomplished both.” Read more
