The Georgia Tech Athletic Association has set a goal of raising $125 million over a 3-year period:
January 1, 2018 - December 31, 2020
These critical funds will not only continue to develop Everyday Champions, they will launch the Yellow Jackets toward new heights of excellence and innovation while helping us strengthen key areas and target strategic priorities in a fashion true to our Georgia Tech DNA – with determined spirit, minus excess and frills.
Georgia Tech student-athletes excel in competition - that's what got them onto a Division I team roster. Still, win or lose, they have other talents that must be developed and other achievements that should be celebrated.
This culture of Everyday Champions - built through the combination of Winning + the Institute + the Total Person Program - is Georgia Tech's true differentiator.
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 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.
