A new cast of 59 student-athletes graduated this May, adding to the impressive list of accomplishments for our Yellow Jackets. The Cap It Off initiative runs from graduation through June 30 (the last day in the 2016 Giving Year) with a goal to exceed last year's $1.3 million in unrestricted gifts and surpass the number of donors (7,428) who made gifts to Georgia Tech Athletics.
Overall gifts to Georgia Tech Athletics last giving year amounted to $21 million. This includes TECH Fund, sport-specific, facility, endowment, and unrestricted gifts. The A-T Unrestricted Fund provides additional scholarship and support resources above and beyond donations to the TECH Fund for seating. Total student-athlete investment is expected to exceed $57,000 for in-state and $79,000 for out-of-state.
Your contributions to the Alexander-Tharpe Fund are vital to creating opportunities to ensure GT student-athletes achieve success athletically, personally and academically.
