Giving Opportunities

Philanthropy has been woven into the fabric of Georgia Tech since its founding 125 years ago, and private support has shaped the campus and created qualitative advantages—in teaching, research, facilities and student life—that elevate a good university to a great one. 

In giving to the College of Architecture, alumni and friends can facilitate and fulfill the dreams of young people who will make a difference in the world in which we live. Your gift to the College of Architecture and its five schools insures present and future students an education based in excellence and facilitates faculty research advancements that can improve the human condition in our ever-changing world.

FACULTY SUPPORT 

The cornerstone of a great program is a great faculty. Teacher-scholars are the foundation of the College of Architecture—men and women eminent in their chosen fields, capable of developing new knowledge through research, and transmitting knowledge through teaching. To maintain and enhance the quality of its academic programs, therefore, the College is seeking permanent endowments in the following areas:

  • Dean’s Chair
  • School Chairs
  • Faculty Professorships
  • Early Career Faculty Fellowships + Professorships
  • Faculty Support + Development 

STUDENT SUPPORT 

The key to Georgia Tech’s future lies in its students, and the amount of support awarded to these talented young people can directly impact their success—and the Institute’s—in the years to come. The College of Architecture has long served as a beacon to exceptionally bright and highly motivated students. The tradition continues unabated, and the College’s commitment to its students has never been more important. Competition has never been stronger for the best and brightest students and gifts for endowments to support the following are extremely valuable. You can make a difference with a gift to establish and support:

  • Graduate Fellowships
  • Undergraduate Scholarships

PROGRAM ENRICHMENT

In order for the College to remain a global leader in architecture, music, design, planning, and construction, the dean, chairs and faculty, must have the resources to implement and sustain initiatives that enhance the College’s curriculum, research, and outreach activities.

FACILITIES AND EQUIPMENT

Several major facilities have been renovated using private funds to enhance state appropriations and other source funding. The comprehensive renovation of the Hinman Building expanded the College of Architecture’s footprint by more than 40,000 square feet, offering a real solution to the severe overcrowding in design studios. To-date, this project has received 12 awards for construction, interior design, and historic preservation.

Numerous commemorative gift opportunities are available, including naming of the buildings as well as individual classrooms and spaces within them.

CURRENT OPERATIONS 

Unlike endowments, current operating funds are available for use in the year in which they are received. Gifts and grants may be designated to the College of Architecture and may remain unrestricted. Such funds support core academic and programmatic goals, as well as provide seed funds for emerging initiatives.
