Giving Tuesday is quickly approaching!

Take time now to find the Pellissippi State Foundation on Twitter @psccfoundation and be ready to follow us for live updates Tuesday, Dec. 2.

On Giving Tuesday—the Tuesday after Thanksgiving—the Pellissippi State Foundation will accept donations to help raise funds for student scholarships. Consider giving and help us spread the word to others about the unique opportunity of Giving Tuesday.

The Foundation hopes to raise $10,000 on Dec. 2. One hundred percent of donations go straight to student scholarships. Give online at or through

Many Pellissippi State students may not qualify for federal loans, grants or even the new Tennessee Promise funding. In fact, 86 percent of Pellissippi State Foundation scholarship recipients last year wouldn’t have qualified for Tennessee Promise if it had been in effect.

Scholarship money can mean the difference in going to school and not going for a student wanting to pursue a higher education.
