Gifts to Permanent Endowment

Gifts and commitments directed for permanent endowment leave a lasting legacy of support for the college, school or program of your interest. Endowments may be established with a minimum commitment of $25,000, generally payable over five years or through an estate gift or life income arrangement. Gifts to endowment are invested by the Georgia Tech Foundation, Inc., the private 501(c)(3) organization that accepts private gifts on behalf of Georgia Tech. The Foundation invests the funds and an annual allocation from investment income is directed for the purpose designated by the donor.

You may direct your endowment gift for unrestricted use by the Office of the President, or to support a particular college, school or program. Endowments may be further directed to support students and faculty, programs and initiatives. Named recognition opportunities are also available by giving to an endowment fund at a designated level, allowing you and/or a loved one to forever be associated with an integral part of Georgia Tech—whether through a scholarship for a student, a chair for a faculty member, or an innovative program.

Gifts to endowment provide sustaining support for Georgia Tech in perpetuity and leave a lasting legacy of your dedication to Georgia Tech and future generations.

Expendable Gifts to Current Operations

Gifts made for expendable purposes are generally spent in the year in which the gift is given and for the purpose designated by the donor. Just as with gifts to endowment, expendable gifts may be directed for unrestricted use by the Office of the President or to support a particular college, school or program. These gifts also may be further directed to support students, faculty, programs and initiatives, and capital projects. At giving levels of a designated amount and above, named recognition opportunities are also available for specific gift types and amounts targeted toward current operations.

For more information on directing your gift to permanent endowment or to current operations, contact Barrett H. Carson, Vice President of Development.
