Welcome to the GPC Annual Fund!
Hello! Welcome to the GPC Annual Fund. We have compiled a short list of frequently asked questions to help you with your giving decisions.
What is an Annual Fund?
Annual Fund Campaigns are the building blocks of philanthropic giving at any nonprofit organization. They are gifts given on an annual basis, are renewable, and come from individuals. Any gift made to GPC by an alum, faculty, staff, student, friend, parent, or community member is an annual fund gift. Odds are, if you've given to GPC before, then your gift was an Annual Fund gift!
Where does my Annual Fund gift go?
You may designate your Annual Fund gift to whichever college program or scholarship fund you like! Click here for a full list of sctive funds you can support. Want to donate, but not sure where to designate your gift? These are the programs we are focusing on raising money for this year:
- 50th Anniversary Endowed Scholarship Fund- This is a brand new fundrasing opportunity. In honor of the 50th Anniversary of the college, we are creating a scholarship to carry on the DeKalb College/DeKalb Community College/Georgia Perimeter College legacy. This scholarship will continue to be scholarship for students who attendthe 2-year component of the new Georgia State University. Click here for more information.
- GPC General Fund
- Any active fund you choose.
- Of course, you can always feel free to donate to the GPC General Fund, the GPC General Scholarship Fund of the GPC Alumni Association Scholarship Fund.
If I am an alumnus/alumna, can I still join the Alumni Association?
The GPC Alumni Association is no longer a dues paying organization. When you donate to the Annual Fund in any amount, in any area, you are considered part of the Alumni Association! All gifts are 100% tax deductable. We have phased out our membership benefits, so you will unfortuantely no longer be receiving our previous benefits packages.
To better steward our donors, we have developed our new Giving Societies. if you would like to become a member of any of our Giving Societies, please contact the Office of Stewardship for more information.
