Employees Give More Than $350,000 to State Campaign
During the 2015 Charitable Campaign, the Tech community once again showed its community-minded nature with generous contributions to nonprofits that will help people around the state of Georgia.
This year, 1,135 individuals contributed or pledged a total of $351,604. This is the second-highest total fundraising amount for the annual campaign.
Tech employees gave to 390 charitable organizations. Top recipients were the American Cancer Society, Atlanta Community Food Bank, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Foundation, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and United Way of Greater Atlanta.
“On behalf of the Campaign leadership team, I want to express appreciation to everyone who contributed this year, and to the ambassadors across campus who represented the Campaign in their units,” said Joe Hughes, campaign chair and professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering. “Every contribution, whether $1 or $1,000, will benefit people throughout the state and assist in meeting their specific needs.”
