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.
At the end of 2015, we 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 were renovated and built. Colleges and Schools were named. One hundred and three new endowed faculty chairs and professorships were established. And hundreds of undergraduate scholarships and graduate fellowships were 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, as part of the Georgia Tech community, in making a difference.
