Building a Legacy: One Supporter at a Time

The School of Aerospace Engineering at Georgia Tech is eternally grateful and indebted to our eponymous supporter, Daniel Guggenheim, whose $300,000 donation in 1930 helped to establish what is, today, the #2 ranked aerospace engineering school in the country. Each year, our development efforts have added to the foundation he created, helping our publicly funded institution to bridge the gap between annual budgets and timeless stature.

It is through these individual contributions, foundation grants, and corporate donations that the Daniel Guggenheim School has continued to defy our humble roots as "the technical school on North Avenue." And it will be through these same contributions that we will remain on the forefront of the field.
