All donations go directly to support resources benefiting current student-athletes through scholarships, mission-based activity, and discretionary improvements. Growth in the following areas allows other GTAA revenues to be distributed to additional areas of need.
The top priority for annual gifts, the Athletic Scholarship Fund is essential to obtaining a winning combination of athletic and academic excellence. Endowment distributions cover less than one-third of annual scholarship costs. The Athletic Scholarship Fund provides direct support for student-athlete scholarships and helps bridge the gap between endowment income and scholarship costs.
Gifts to Georgia Tech sports programs help each of Georgia Tech's 17 teams recruit and develop student-athletes by having a direct impact on the daily operations of their team and enhancing the student-athlete experience. Gifts to a specific sport earn benefits and recognition unique to your favorite team.
A number of immediate improvements outside the scope of standard operations can be made to support innovation and excellence in Georgia Tech's athletics programs. Unrestricted gifts to this fund can be used at the discretion of the athletics director to address these needs and also give the AD flexibility to address unexpected critical needs as they arise.
The TECH Fund is the per-seat contibrution* program for preferred seats for Georgia Tech Football and Men's Basketball. TECH Fund donors enjoy access to the best areas in Bobby Dodd Stadium and McCamish Pavilion as well as the benefits of being a season ticket holder.
*As of January 1, 2018, contributions to the TECH Fund are no longer considered tax deductible in accordance with the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017.
Annual funds for Men's Basketball and Football come from small, but impactful core donor support groups, allowing these programs to have access to discretionary dollars in order to move quickly and efficiently in recruiting, coaching, and graduating championship student-athletes.
