How to Give Back to the Co-op Program

 

As most of us are well aware, economic times have been tough the past few years, and some of you may have experienced this first-hand.  Georgia Tech, as a state-assisted institution, has weathered the storm by making sacrifices in a lot of areas, and tightening the “financial belt,” as it may be called, in many areas. One of these has been the Co-op Program.  This is where you as alumni fit into the big picture.

Many of you have been quite successful, but it stands to reason that most of you have had some modicum of success in your careers.  To that end, the Co-op Program can use your assistance to ensure the next century of progress. 

If you have done quite well financially, and want to step up to provide funds for endowment purposes, you might want to check out the opportunities listed HERE (Adobe PDF file).  You can provide scholarships for students or even funds for operating expenses within the Division of Professional Practice through your generous giving.  It can be cash gifts, or within your estate planning for the future.  If this is something you might be interested in, please contact Wayne Thompson, Co-op Centennial Chair at wayne.thompson@dopp.gatech.edu.

For a lot of alumni, you may wish to make your cash gift now and can do so by sending your gift to the Division of Professional Practice at Georgia Tech.  Just complete our Co-op Centennial Donation Form (Adobe PDF file).  Just complete the form, and mail back the information back to us with your donation.  Please note that for a minimum gift of $100, you will receive a copy of the Co-op Centennial Video, and for a minimum gift of $200, you will receive a copy of the Co-op Centennial Book.  For a minimum of $250, you will receive both.

ANY GIFT OVER $5,000 WILL HAVE YOUR NAME ENGRAVED ON A PERMANENT PLAQUE IN THE DIVISION OF PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE.
