2016 Celebrate

The most successful fundraising campaign in Georgia Tech’s history concluded on December 31, 2015. When the books were closed, more than $1.8 billion had been raised. In addition to dollar amounts, Campaign Georgia Tech’s success can also be measured by the fact that all of its major goals were realized — and surpassed.

Take a moment to explore this summary of the Campaign — the goals, the results, and the impact — as well as highlights and stories of those who gave and those whose lives were indelibly touched by philanthropy. You will see that alumni were the driving force behind this unprecedented giving, making up by far the largest proportion of donors and dollars. Georgia Tech alumni are proud, and when called upon to give back, they responded in historic fashion.

You will also see that countless others stepped up as well: spouses, parents, friends, faculty and staff, foundations, and corporations. And you will see that planned gifts played an extraordinary role in the success of the Campaign. Of all gifts and commitments made by individuals, planned gifts — both estate gifts and life-income gifts — comprised more than 45 percent. Everywhere, you will see the power of philanthropy at work. The power to advance a vision for the future and to transform lives.
