Ways to Contribute


Ways of giving

Cash - The most common method of giving that provides instant support for both restricted and unrestricted needs throughout the college. Make your contribution online via http://www.gptc.edu/give.

Scholarships - Donors can endow and name a scholarship to honor an individual, business, or organization. For a minimum gift of $10,000, a named scholarship can be established in perpetuity to provide annual scholarship support for deserving students.

In-Kind - These gifts include equipment, merchandise, property, etc. in lieu of a cash contribution. In-kind instructional equipment directly benefits the college’s programs.

Securities - Negotiable securities, i.e. appreciated stock held for more than one year provide tax savings for donors and support for GPTC. Gifts of stock eliminate capital gains tax while offering a tax deduction for full fair-market value on the date of the gift.

Deferred Gifts - Bequests, wills, trusts, annuities, real estate, and gifts of life insurance provide substantial support for future use.

Matching Gifts - Donors can increase the value of their cash and in-kind gifts through matching programs. Click on TechMatch or Corporate Matches for information.

Sponsorships – This includes support for specific college programs and activities.

Named Funds – Donors can establish and name an endowment, replenishing, or one-time-gift fund for a minimum cash donation of $10,000. Click on Strategic-Initiative Funds or call (404) 297-9522 ext. 1753 for further information.

Other Gifts - In some cases, loans of facilities and equipment, deep discounts, and other resources can be considered gifts.

Contribute or Pledge - Online or by Regular Mail
