Whether it provides groceries to a family in need or feeds an animal in a shelter — every dollar donated to the State Charitable Contribution Program helps a worthy cause. In 2014, Georgia Tech was awarded the Governor’s Cup for the seventh year in a row for having the highest contribution per employee or retiree to the State Charitable Contributions Program of the state institutions in its division. Now, we need your help to make it eight in a row in 2015.
This year, Georgia Tech's campaign efforts run Sept. 1 through Nov. 14, 2014. There are a variety of local and national nonprofit organizations that you can contribute to ranging from the Jeanette Rankin Women's Scholarship Fund to the National Brain Tumor Society. Please take a moment to pledge your contribution using TechWorks, and help the Institute reach its goal of getting at least 1,500 members of the campus community to give $330,000. Questions?

UPDATE: Thanks to all who donated during this year's campaign. At this time, no additional donations are being accepted. As of Nov. 17, 1,309 people donated $357,930. And congratulations to Myrtle Turner of Georgia Tech Research Institute for winning the drawing for golf for four at the Currahee Club in Toccoa, Ga.!
