Dec. 16, 2015
December is a popular time for donations as the final chance to earn 2015 tax year deductions. Philanthropic support through the Alexander-Tharpe Fund provides Yellow Jacket student-athletes with the resources and tools to achieve athletic, academic and personal success. Please consider the Georgia Tech Athletic Association in your giving plans during this holiday season.
Contributions to the A-T Unrestricted Fund have a direct impact by providing flexible resources to support student-athletes. By designating your annual gift to your favorite team, you can enhance the annual current operations and assist with building championship caliber programs.
These final few weeks of 2015 also mark the close of Campaign Georgia Tech, an effort that has spanned more than 10 years and raised more than $1.5 billion of support for this great institution. During that time, donors have made a profound impact on the lives of all Yellow Jacket student-athletes who have called The Flats home since 2004. Through commitments to the A-T Unrestricted Fund, TECH Fund, sport funds, facility or endowment initiatives, you can still join the donors that have contributed more than $250 million in gifts and pledges benefitting the Georgia Tech Athletic Association and its student-athletes.
