$5 goes to unrestricted giving to Roll Call toward improving the student experience.
Plus your donation is matched by Georgia Tech Alumni!
Here is exactly how your donation supports Tech: $5 goes toward the SAA Gift to Tech. Donations collected between July 1, 2011 and June 30, 2012 will go towards a project which SAA members select from the top 5 choices chosen by the Georgia Tech Student Body through an online vote. Plus, for every student donation to SAA, alumnus Allen Eckerwill give an additional $10 toward the SAA Gift to Tech (up to $10,000). So by joining, you give $15 towards projects like last year's campus safety initiative that enhance life on campus. Our goal is 3,00 SAA members for the 2012/2013 year, which translates into a $25,000 donation to the selected SAA Gift to Tech project.
$5 of the donation goes towards the Georgia Tech Student Foundation (GTSF) endowment for Roll Call. Members of GTSF are responsible for raising funds to increase the organization's endowment, overseeing a diverse portfolio of investments, and allocating a portion of the earnings to worthy student projects. Over the years, the GTSF has contributed over $500,000 to approximately 350 student projects. All donors are recognized online.

My time as part of SAA's Ramblin' On committee was a phenomenal one. I simply loved the experience, which allowed me to help plan a major event while developing necessary communication and cooperation skills with both other members of the committee and professionals, as well. Plus, the group of students I worked with ultimately all became my friends, which is an invaluable feeling!! - Josh Brown, HTS 2015, SAA Committee Chair
Mentor Jackets program is awesome. I not only have a wonderful mentor, but also ended up having a lifetime friend who can offer me advice and help whenever I need it. I will participate in this program every year. The program provides precious opportunities for students to connect closely with alumni. - Zhong Chen, Master's CS 2013, Mentor Jackets Participant
Being a part of the Student Alumni Association opened doors at Georgia Tech that I would never have dreamed of. During my time as a member of SAA, I was given the opportunity to coordinate a Dinner Jacket event with Tom Fanning, the CEO of Southern Company and a fellow Yellow Jacket. That was easily one of the most memorable and rewarding experiences from my time at Tech. Plus, I got a free steak out of it! - Imran Ali, MGT 2012, Dinner Jackets Participant
