Initiative 2020

What are Georgia Tech’s most pressing philanthropic needs in the near term?
Answering this question has led the Institute to identify four key areas on which to focus its fundraising efforts over the next few years: Intercollegiate Athletics, Student Support, Institute Capital Projects, and Institute Programs.

Each area is further broken down into specific goals, so alumni, friends, foundations, and corporations can see where their philanthropic passions and interests align with Institute priorities. All gifts and commitments made between January 2018 and December 2020 will be applied to Initiative 2020. Your generous support will help Georgia Tech lead the way into a new decade — and a greater future.
