Annual Giving Goal

Endowment Quick Facts

In December 2019, the brothers and friends of GEAA donated more than $30,000  capitalizing a scholarship endowment at Tuskegee University. GEAA has a goal of raising $100,000 by September 30, 2020.

The Donated Money Is Invested

Tuskegee University never withdraws any of the principal; only the interest earned from our donations is used to fund our endowment scholarships

GEAA Scholarship Endowment is Restricted

GEAA will identify the elgibility requirements for Tuskegee University students to receive the GEAA Scholarship Endowment 

Perputuity = Legacy

Our endowment is permanent. It provides support for its designated purpose forever – supporting generations to come

 

Payable To TU

All payments are payable to Tuskegee University -and in the memo section of the donation form, add GEAA Achievement Scholarship E1945. Donations are tax deductible.

 

Collecting Pledges and Donations

By Homecoming 2020 we want to raise $100,000.  Donations and completed pledges are due by September 30, 2020. Both are equally important to our cause. You can take action today: make a one-time donation; set up recurring payments; or make a pledge. The combination of these options give the committee the ability to forecast current and future donations.

Ask Line Brothers

There is nothing like your “Ships”.

“The Whole is Greater than the Sum of its Parts”. We want each line ambassador to ask their shipmates for  participation in our endowment campaign. No amount is too small, we want everyone to contribute to our goal.

Circle of Friends

Don’t underestimate the power of your “influence”

Studies show almost 60% of donors made a donation as a result of an “ask” from family and friends. Make their donations go to the GEAA Achievement Scholarship – E1945

Company Match

Double It

Matching gifts are very important to our endowment beacause it is free money. Fortunately, GEAA has many members who work for employers that have matching gift programs. Maximize the impact of your donation, learn more about your employers gift matching program.

Matching Gift Form

Check your company’s website for their matching gift program. The gift must be paid, not pledged. The company’s matching gift form must be sent to Tuskegee Univ. to indicate the payment(s) that are matched. Typically, company’s match gifts that have been made in the last 12 months to qualify for a matching gift.

Steps To Match

  1. Send a one-time donation along with your company’s matching gift form to Tuskegee Univeristy
  2. If your donation is payroll deducted, the employer sends a single check equal to the sum of: a) the amount held back from the your paycheck(s); b) the company’s matching dollars.

Follow Up 

The matching gift program benefits the GEAA Endowment and your company’s outreach to a broad range of communities. Our Endowment Committee wants to follow-up on the matching gift (confirming Tuskegee Univ. verifies your donation and/or has received the matching gift).

Important: When your company approves your matching gift notify the Endowment Committee, by email,  when matching gifts are processed and mailed. Notify us, so we can  ensure Tuskegee University credits your company’s matching gift to our endowment – GEAA E1945.

Your Gift Is The Difference

If a lump-sum payment doesn’t fit the budget, consider a smaller recurring payment. Set your donation goal with recurring payments with a predetermined schedule

* Recurring monthly payments will occur at the same time each month; cancel anytime payments art tax deductble

“I have 3 loves – family, Tuskegee and Kappa Alpha Psi. I’ve given back to Tuskegee for the past 15 years. It’s always been to the General Fund. With GEAA, I can support Tuskegee (as we all should) and I can continue to espouse the fundamentals of Phi Nu Pi by doing what we are called to do “love and honor thee. We are called to make a difference. Through GEAA, I can make a difference.”

Mike Brazzell

Tuskegee Univ. Alumnus | KA&#936

I give to make a difference. I feel a duty to help the next generation. It’s critical that we make every effort to support our institutions financially. We can’t afford to wait on others to do what we can do for ourselves.

Greg Kight

Tuskegee Univ. Alumnus | KA&#936

I am contributing to the GEAA Foundation because support for Mother Tuskegee is a must to sustain it’s existence, plus we must give to our collegiate brothers to help them complete their undergraduate work, and have reduced debt after graduating.

 

Billy Abrams

“Tuskegee University prepared me to be successful in my career. It is my duty and obligation as an Alumni to give back and help give opportunities for education that were afforded to me. Golden Tiger for life!!!”

Ken Jeffries

Tuskegee Univ. Alumnus | KA&#936

“It is important for me to support Tuskegee University and my fraternity brothers cause. My contribution is a step toward reducing college debt for our students and helping build Tuskegee University’s endowment.”

Greg Nixon

Tuskegee Univ. Alumnus|KA&#936

“With rising college costs there is a big need. So – contributing to our endowment makes sense to me. I donated and my company matched it. Tuskegee University is a big contributor to my success – and I want the recipients of our scholarships to have the opportunity to feel the same .”
