A Message from Vice President for Development Barrett H. Carson
Every day, we here in the Office of Development have the privilege of connecting with alumni and friends of the Georgia Institute of Technology. Every day, we see the difference that they have made on campus, across the state, and around the globe — ever since the Georgia School of Technology opened its doors nearly 130 years ago.
Philanthropy is woven into the fabric of the Institute. As you explore this site, you will read the stories of individuals, foundations, corporations — all of whom have shaped, and will continue to shape, Georgia Tech. Stories of Philanthropy at Work.
We recently concluded a $1.5 billion fundraising campaign, the largest in the Institute's history — twice the size of the previous campaign, which was twice the size of its predecessor. All told, 91,610 donors participated. Buildings have been renovated and built. Colleges and Schools have been named. One hundred and three new endowed faculty chairs and professorships have been established. And hundreds of undergraduate scholarships and graduate fellowships have been funded. But in the end, it's not about the money . . . and it never has been. It's about the impact of philanthropy. The lives that have been changed, the doors that have been opened, the new knowledge that has been made possible.
We appreciate each and every one of you who have given of your time and resources to advance the cause of this great institution. And if you are new to this particular philanthropic landscape, we invite you to join us. "Our time . . . our legacy" is not just a tagline. It is the foundation of all that we do, as part of the Georgia Tech community, to leave things a little better than we found them.
