We’ll be Calling YOU!

During the coming weeks, you may hear from one of our student telefund callers, who will discuss with you how you can give to the UT College Fund or renew your commitment. The College Fund provides an opportunity to make a gift to one or more of UT Knoxville’s colleges or libraries.

Gifts to the College Fund go to work immediately and are used to address the unique opportunities, challenges, and needs facing each college. Whether it is funding technology upgrades, student enrichment activities, and scholarships or helping to retain outstanding faculty, alumni can take pride in knowing their gifts have an immediate, positive impact on the educational experience of students in the colleges of their greatest interest.

UT Knoxville has a proud heritage and is forever indebted to loyal alumni who have helped the university achieve its status as one of the premier public institutions in the country.  In today’s environment of tightened budgets and reduced state funding, the importance of flexible-use resources cannot be overstated.

These types of “current operations” gifts allow our campus leaders to respond to immediate needs at the university and help keep us competitive. Through the College Fund, donors are providing flexible gifts that allow our campus leaders to take bold actions to keep the university at the forefront of advanced learning and discovery.

If you miss the call, you can give online at giveto.utk.edu or by mail to

University of Tennessee
Office of Development & Alumni Affairs

Be sure to include your telephone number and designate the college or library that should receive your gift.
