As an alumnus or friend of Georgia Tech, you are part of a long tradition of generous giving that has helped raise the profile and increase the prestige of the Institute. Year after year, alumni post one of the nation's highest giving rates, thereby sustaining the vital work conducted in our research labs and classrooms. The vast majority of private giving to the Institute comes from our alumni and friends, and we appreciate your ongoing loyalty and generosity.
The majority of gifts from Tech alumni and friends ultimately support either endowment or facilities construction and renovation. With a gift to endowment or facilities, you can help provide scholarships to bright students with limited financial resources or be a part of creating a world-class facility like the Campus Recreation Center.
At Georgia Tech, facilities are more than just bricks and mortar. They are the state-of-the-art environments in which students, faculty, and staff flourish. Your support can provide the room for their ideas to grow into the creative applications that will shape the future.
A Georgia Tech tradition for nearly sixty years, the annual Roll Call provides you the opportunity to support a critical yet often overlooked aspect of the Institute: current operations. In addition to supporting basic, ongoing maintenance needs, your gift to Roll Call also provides student scholarships and financial aid, faculty and student recruitment initiatives, and new academic programs.
If supporting Georgia Tech's hard-working student-athletes is something you're passionate about, then you should consider giving to the Alexander-Tharpe (A-T) Fund. The primary purpose of the A-T Fund is to raise funds to provide scholarships for the student-athletes who bring tremendous recognition and prestige to Georgia Tech. The A-T Fund is working hard to reach a level of unrestricted annual giving that will cover the cost of the full number of scholarships allowed by the NCAA.
Since the early 1980s, alumni celebrating their milestone 50th, 40th, and 25th class reunions have given millions of dollars to their alma mater to support a wide variety of projects, including merit-based and need-based scholarships, campus beautification projects, and new and renovated facilities.
Honor the memory of a deceased loved one through a memorial gift. Your gift will stand as a permanent reminder of the impact the honoree made during his or her lifetime.
