Methods of Giving

Cash Gifts

Donors who wish to make a cash gift may write a check may be made payable to “Alexander-Tharpe Fund" or provide a credit card. Monthly giving through a credit card is a convenient way to support Georgia Tech athletics. Checks must be postmarked December 31st or earlier for year-end giving. 

The GT Athletic Association is a proud partner of Uback - a mobile friendly app that allows easy charitable giving to many organizations all one place.
 

 

Pledges

Gifts and commitments are generally payable over a period of 5 years.  Download the Letter of Commitment and send back to atfund@athletics.gatech.edu.

Matching Gifts

Through the matching gift program, the donor’s employer matches gifts made to the A-T Fund. Submit the company’s matching gift form with payment, and it significantly increases the contribution to the fund, often doubling it through dollar-for-dollar matching. A-T will recognize the total amount, including the matching gift (and the associated priority points) as soon as the gift is received. Please send the matching gift form to the A-T Fund Attn: Anita Lee 150 Bobby Dodd Way NW, Atlanta, GA 30332-0455.

Stock Gifts

The gift date for an electronic transfer of stock is the date it arrives in the account at SunTrust, NOT the date instructed to broker to initiate the transfer.

Real Estate

Substantial tax benefits also exist for gifts of real estate, which are subject to acceptance by the Alexander-Tharpe Fund. A-T will provide donor recognition for the appraised value of the property. Charitable trusts established with gifts of real estate are popular methods of creating life income with tax benefits.

Planned Gifts

Bequests and IRA Designations

Bequests and IRA designations can provide benefits and permanent name recognition with endowed scholarships. Bequests made through wills and IRA designations can be made in specific amounts, percentages, or residual amounts.

Life Income and Trusts

Charitable trusts offer an opportunity to make a substantial gift to A-T without giving up the annual income produced by these assets. The donor retains income for life and the life of his or her spouse. A-T will provide donor recognition for a percentage of this trust immediately. This gift can also be structured to create a substantial tax deduction over a period of years.
