Parents Fund for Student Life and Leadership

Each year, parents of current Georgia Tech students provide generous philanthropic support to further enhance the lives of every student on campus. 

Please take a minute to view the following video which explains the impact of these donations.

Your gifts to the Parents Fund for Student Life & Leadership are used to support programs designed by students for students.

More than 450 chartered student organizations are invited to submit proposals for funding each year to a student committee overseen by the Vice President for Student Affairs and the Dean of Students.  After a competitive review process, Parents Fund grants are awarded based on high-visibility and high-impact programming that promotes interaction among the campus community, endorses healthy lifestyles, encourages cross-cultural or artistic awareness, provides entertainment and bolsters Georgia Tech spirit and traditions.

Unfortunately, the student-led committee must turn down a number of worthy requests because the demand for funding exceeds available resources.  Your gift to the Parents Fund will help fund these valuable programs.

While your student is at Georgia Tech, please consider making the Parents Fund one of your top philanthropic priorities.  Your gifts are tax deductible and regardless of the size, each and every gift to the Parents Fund matters.
