The Alexander-Tharpe Fund is a division of the Georgia Tech Athletic Association and serves as the primary fundraising arm for all facilities, endowments and current operations. The A-T Fund community is a big part of Georgia Tech athletics’ momentum. With your help, Athletics Initiative 2020 finished with more than $175 million raised to benefit the GTAA, and resulted in the top three fundraising years in the history averaging more than $50 million per year.  


The financial challenges of building and sustaining a successful athletics program are never-ending and ever-growing.  With a strong foundation - based on three key pillars - Georgia Tech Athletics can not only meet these challenges but exceed expectations for success. We are extremely grateful to our friends and fans of Georgia Tech athletics for their financial support. 

Gifts and commitments of all sizes are welcome to the following areas:

Current Operations

Ticket sales alone cannot support the people and programs that Georgia Tech needs to build and maintain a world-class athletics enterprise. Gifts to the Athletic Scholarship Fund - as well as sport-specific gifts to help recruit and enhance the student-athlete experience - can and do make a difference.  


Investment returns from endowed funds provide a source of income in perpetuity for student-athlete scholarships, coaching and administrative positions, and sports programs.


New construction and renovations are necessary to ensure that Georgia Tech will remain competitive in attracting and retaining the best student-athletes, hiring and retaining quality coaching and administrative staff, and providing a spectator experience that keeps fans coming back.
