Georgia Tech Swimming and Diving has enhanced the college experience of countless young men and women, by providing them with opportunities to pursue their athletic passions, all while obtaining a degree from this fantastic institution. 

We are excited by the growth of GT Swimming and Diving over the last several years, and are looking forward to a future filled with promise.  The landscape in college athletics is changing and now, more than ever, philanthropy will be a key to our competitive success.  We would like to see our letterwinners take an active role in financially supporting our program through annual giving and long-term philanthropy.

Scholarships - Top Priority Student-Athlete Experience Unbudgeted Expenses
  • Ability to award the maximum scholarships allowed by the out-of-state rate 
  • Enhanced recruiting due to full scholarship offers
  • Team room upgrades
  • One West-coast meet per year to increase recruiting visibility
  • Yoga/massage treatments
  • Develop student-athletes with championship character through team-building experiences 
  • Provide funding source for unbudgeted and unforeseen expenses throughout the year

Annual support provides the resources necessary to develop top student-athletes who compete at their highest potential during their time at Tech, delivering an experience second to none.  Your gift lets the team know you share our passion for GT Swimming and Diving.

Long-term Philanthropy

The best way to ensure the financial stability of a program is through endowed scholarships. Donors who create an endowment know their philanthropy will continue in perpetuity, and develop a personal connection with GT Swimming & Diving through the naming of a current student-athlete to their scholarship annually.  Currently, GT Men’s Swimming & Diving needs an additional $2.8 million to be fully endowed and the Women’s side needs $3 million. An endowment can be created with a minimum gift of $25,000 payable over 5 years.  

Men's Goal: $3,034,964 to full endowment

Women's Goal:  $3,123,363 to full endowment
