Matching Gifts

An easy way to double or even triple your donation is to find out if your company has a matching-gift program. Such programs typically match all or a percentage of employee contributions to charitable organizations, making the employer a partner in employees’ personal philanthropy. Simply obtain a matching-gift form from your employer’s personnel office, fill it out, and provide it to us with your contribution. 

Planned Gifts

Planned gifts are some of the greatest sources of funding for Georgia Tech. These gifts stabilize Tech's financial foundation, securing the future of Tech while perpetuating a legacy of giving. To learn about deferred or planned gifts, including bequests, life-income plans, and other options for your estate — and for information about increasing your income, earning valuable income-tax deductions, and reducing your estate taxes — please visit Georgia Tech Gift Planning.

Tax Benefits

Your gift may provide you with federal and state income tax benefits. Your state may also allow a credit or deduction. Georgia Tech Foundation Inc. has 501(c)(3) nonprofit tax exempt status; our federal tax ID number is 58-6043294.

Please contact Tamika Barnes, Development of Development, to discuss philanthropic opportunities.
