Investment returns from endowed funds provide a source of income in perpetuity for student-athlete scholarships, coaching and administrative positions, and sports programs. All donations go directly to support resources benefiting current student-athletes through scholarships, mission-based activity, and discretionary improvements. Growth in the following areas allows other GTAA revenues to be distributed to additional areas of need.

Such a scholarship allows coaches to recruit elite student-athletes nationally as they seek those special individuals who will thrive at Georgia Tech.
Similar to named dean's chairs and school chairs at the Institute, naming a coaching or leadership position creates a lasting family legacy and an endowment that provides annual income for program support, ensuring that Georgia Tech attracts and retains the very best talent.
