Supporting the ChBE Program

Ford ES&T building

Opportunities to Help

Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering is a discipline influencing numerous areas of technology. Our School is constantly changing to stay at the forefront of the discipline. Private support gives Georgia Tech its competitive edge, and current operations gifts can be used soon after donation. Gifts to ChBE for unrestricted use support core academic and programmatic needs, and provide seed funds for emerging academic initiatives. Such discretionary funds can be given outright or by establishing an endowment.. Named endowment funds begin at $25,000. Georgia Tech encourages unrestricted endowments in ChBE to provide maximum flexibility to enable the School's leadership to meet pressing needs and to provide support for new initiatives.

Named Auditorium ~ $1,500,000
The home of the School of ChBE is the Ford Environmental Science & Technology Building, one of the largest academic buildings in the University System of Georgia. The largest room in the ES&T building is the main auditorium where the School offers daily classes; hosts companies for AIChE student chapter meetings and visiting scholars for weekly seminars; gathers undergrad and graduate students for mentoring; and welcomes outstanding lecturers for named symposia. The 118-seat auditorium boasts state-of-the-art technology to facilitate audience interaction with presenters as well as to allow for distance learning and the recording of all presentations. Your gift of an endowment would the enable the Chair to meet the School’s top priorities.

Named Research Laboratories ~ from $2,000,000
The School strives to equip its laboratories and classrooms with cutting-edge 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.
