Reasons to Give

Giving creates a lasting connection with the institute. Here are some meaningful ways to establish that connection.

Celebrate a Milestone Reunion

Each year the 25th, 40th, and 50th reunion classes celebrate these milestones by giving back – supporting projects that advance the Institute and enhance opportunities for current and future Georgia Tech students.

Leave a Lasting Legacy

Endowments are forever. They are the financial bedrock upon which Georgia Tech has risen to become one of the leading technological research universities in the nation and the world.

Honor a Loved One

Gifts in honor or memory of a loved one, classmate, friend, or faculty member benefit Georgia Tech and serve as a permanent reminder of the impact of the honorees. These gifts may be made by an individual donor or by a group, and may be designated to a specific fund or program.


Make a Difference

The power of private philanthropy cannot be overstated. Generous, private donors make scholarships, graduate fellowships, faculty chairs, new and existing programs, and state-of-the-art facilities possible.
