Give to UTK: College/Campus Fund Annual Appeal Underway

Current UT students are future UT alumni like yourself. Support UT and our students by giving online today to the university’s college and campus funds!

Join alumni and friends to support the college and campus funds by giving online or by mail.  The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, has a proud heritage and is forever indebted to the 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 need at the university and help keep us competitive.

Through the Campus Fund and the College Funds, 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.

The College Fund

The College Fund provides an opportunity to make a gift to one or more of UT’s nine colleges. 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 retain outstanding faculty, donors can take pride in knowing their gift to their college is having an immediate, positive impact on the educational experience of students in the colleges of their greatest interest.

The UT Knoxville Campus Fund

The UT Knoxville Campus Fund is a new priority and represents an opportunity for alumni and friends to support the larger goals and priorities of the university as set by the chancellor. With an increased level of support of gifts of this nature, our donors allow the chancellor to take full advantage of unique opportunities and address specific needs as they arise.

OTHER FUNDS

Fund for University Libraries

The heart of a campus is its library, and the University of Tennessee is fortunate to have one of the finest library systems in the country. Gifts to the Fund for University Libraries benefit all students by providing support for new collections and reference materials for all libraries on the Knoxville campus.

Fund for Student Affairs

The Division of Student Affairs is committed to providing our students with the very best campus experience possible. Campus housing, student government, intramurals, and cultural programming are all components of the complete college experience. Gifts to the Fund for Student Affairs support these areas and help underwrite programming and special initiatives. This helps prepare students to enter the workforce and provides a strong foundation needed to remain lifelong volunteers.
