Charitable Campaign Closes Nov. 15
So far this year, nearly 800 employees have given to Georgia Tech's Charitable Campaign, but it will take many more to reach this year's giving goals.
This year's participants have donated or pledged more than $250,000. The Institute goal is for 1,500 members of the campus community to participate and to raise $375,000. Employees have until Sunday, Nov. 15 to make a contribution or pledge.
Donating through TechWorks (www.techworks.gatech.edu) is preferred, as it is confidential and secure, and provides options for payroll deduction, credit/debit card, and WebCheck. For additional information or a paper pledge form, visit the Charitable Campaign website at www.charitable.gatech.edu or contact Campaign Chair Joseph Hughes at email@example.com.
About the Campaign
The annual campaign collects donations for nonprofits and charitable organizations that serve communities all over the state and beyond. All state entities, including University System of Georgia (USG) schools, participate in the annual fundraiser.
Last year, 1,361 Georgia Tech employees pledged $365,579 — a significant increase compared to recent years. For the past eight years, Georgia Tech has been the recipient of the Governor’s Cup, which is awarded annually to the state institution with the highest average contribution per employee. Tech has won the Cup a total of 13 times. In 2015, Georgia Tech also was awarded for having the largest total increase in contributions and the highest level of employee participation.
Donations are accepted via payroll deduction on an ongoing basis, or as a one-time donation. For those who choose to give through payroll deduction, the contributions will begin in January 2016. Employees can give to a general fund or choose specific organizations to which they would like to direct their donations.
