YOUR INVESTMENT IN WOMEN'S BASKETBALL

Everyday GT Women’s Basketball strives to promote an atmosphere of excellence in all aspects of our program. As a donor supporting women’s basketball, I know you join me in our aspiration to recruit the best and brightest student-athletes, provide every scholarship and academic need, compete for the ACC and NCAA Championship, and prepare these young women for life as Georgia Tech alumnae.

GT Women’s Basketball has set a fundraising goal of $375,000 through our annual giving program to enhance our current operations and maintain a championship caliber program.

Some examples of how these funds could be used are:

»» Enhanced recruiting
»» Donor/season ticket holder events

Upgraded technology
»» Smart Board system

Reaching this mark will ensure our ability to deliver a top-notch experience to all of our student-athletes. Your support will earn benefits unique to GT Women’s Basketball, and will provide the resources necessary to develop top student-athletes who compete at their highest potential during their time at Tech. Thank you for your consideration, and Go Jackets!

Team Locker Room Renovation

Construction planning for renovations of the Women's Basketball team locker room (located in the Jim Luck building adjacent to McCamish Pavilion) is underway.  Proposed improvements include better access points between the Zelnak Practice Facility and the locker room as well as modernized enhancements to the team lounge, sports medicine and academic study areas.  These upgrades will put Georgia Tech Women's Basketball in line with peer institutions, help attract the best recruits and provide student-athletes with the environment necessary to perform at the highest level. 
For additional information regarding endowments or the locker room project supporting GT Women's Basketball, contact Mindy Hyde in the Alexander-Tharpe Fund at (404) 894-5435 or mhyde@athletics.gatech.edu.
