How can you support the ChBE program?
ChBE is constantly changing to stay at the forefront of our discipline. Private support gives Georgia Tech our competitive edge, and current operations gifts can be used soon after donation. Gifts and grants to ChBE for unrestricted use support core academic and programmatic needs as well as provide seed funds for emerging academic initiatives. Such discretionary funds can be given outright or by establishing an endowment from which income supports the School’s leadership in addressing needs. A named endowment fund begins at $25,000. Georgia Tech encourages unrestricted endowments in ChBE to provide maximum flexibility to meet pressing needs and to provide support for new initiatives.
Named School Chair ~ from $2,500,000
The most prestigious of all the Endowed Chairs, the School Chair's Chair is dedicated to the leadership of the School and will enhance the School's ability to attract and retain first-rate educators in the position of academic administration. Competition for outstanding academic leaders is strong among the top programs. Incentives such as this named Chair will greatly benefit both the department and the Institute.
Named Auditorium ~ $1,500,000
The home of the School of ChBE is the Ford Environmental Science & Technology Building, the largest academic building in the University System of Georgia. The largest room in the ES&T is the main auditorium where ChBE: teaches classes daily; hosts companies for AIChE student chapter meetings and visiting scholars for seminars weekly; gathers undergrad and graduate students for mentoring in the ExxonMobil Success Program bi-monthly; and twice yearly welcomes outstanding lecturers for named symposia. The 118-seat auditorium has the latest electronic equipment to facilitate audience interaction with presenters as well as to allow for distance learning and recording of all presentations. This is the center of student and faculty learning in Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering as well as the public space where ChBE welcomes the rest of Tech for broader conversations. Your gift would be for an endowment with income expendable by the Chair to meet the School’s most pressing needs.
Named Research Laboratories ~ from $2,000,000
The School strives to equip its laboratories and classrooms with current technologies. Equipment and instrumentation are sought to continue to upgrade laboratories, ensuring the best possible research environment. Equipment and software may be given in-kind—subject to acceptance—or designated gifts may be given for purchase. Numerous commemorative gift opportunities are available.
