Support from foundations has been key to funding critical initiatives at Georgia Tech. In 2006, for example, The Marcus Foundation pledged major support for the Marcus Nanotechnology Building, which houses Tech's Nanotechnology Research Center. The previous year, The Woodruff Foundation also made a major commitment to the project. Both foundations are especially interested in supporting projects that advance medical science, and the Nanotechnology Research Center has vast potential for such advancement.

The support we receive from these two foundations and countless others is advancing knowledge in areas such as healthcare diagnostics and treatment, environmental sustainability, and alternative energy development.

The Foundation Relations staff at Georgia Tech works with dozens of foundations to match their funding priorities with Georgia Tech's strategic needs. Our staff is ready to help you assess which of the many giving opportunities at Tech is best suited to your foundation's priorities.
