Mission. The Office of Development is principally responsible for securing the understanding and philanthropic support of the private sector for the Institute and its programs. The Office of Development focuses its effort on obtaining commitments for major gifts ($25,000 or more payable over five years) to the Institute or its associated foundation(s). Support is sought to enable the Institute and its colleges, schools, and other units to achieve strategic objectives and assist in achieving the mission of the Institute. In the furtherance of its mission, the Office of Development works collaboratively with related organizations: the Georgia Tech Alumni Association, which is charged with securing unrestricted annual support for the academic programs of the Institute through the Annual Roll Call; the Alexander-Tharpe Fund, Inc., which seeks private support of the Institute’s intercollegiate athletics program; and the Georgia Tech Foundation, Inc., which is responsible for the management and expenditure of most private gifts made for the benefit of the Institute.
