Lemon Fund Information

The University of Georgia Athletic Association has received permission from the NCAA to accept donations on behalf of UGA football player Michael Lemon and his younger brother, Marquez(15), who suffered the loss of their mother last week.

The Athletic Association is continuing to work with the NCAA in the establishment of a possible trust fund to assist Michael in taking care of Marquez. Due to NCAA rules, the Athletic Association is required to adhere to strict guidelines in the disbursement of funds for the actual and necessary expenses that have resulted from the recent tragic death of the young men's mother, Phaba Lemon of Lizella, Ga.

Individuals interested in making a donation should make checks payable to the University of Georgia Athletic Association with "The Lemon Support Fund" notated on the memo line. Contributions should be forwarded to:

University of Georgia Athletic Association
c/o Eric Baumgartner
P.O. Box 1472
Athens, GA 30603

Proceeds are not tax deductible and will be transferred to The Lemon Trust Fund once established. The Athletic Association is working diligently with the NCAA to adhere to all applicable rules. Any questions related to the fund or NCAA rules related to the matter should be directed to Eric Baumgartner, UGA Assistant Athletic Director for Compliance ([email protected] or 706-542-9103).
