Endowment

Ensuring educational opportunity and quality of life for generations

Endowment funds help support the Performing Arts Series, Project GRAD, academic programs, general scholarships, and the general endowment.
Note: The U.S. Department of Education Endowment Challenge Grant awarded to Pellissippi State for 2003-2008 ensures that all gifts designated to endowments will be matched dollar for dollar until the goal of $362,000 has been reached.

Academic and Student Enrichment

Gifts support whatever areas have the greatest need- anything from emergency loans for students to professional development for faculty to enrichment of academic and technical programs.

Meeting the demand for increased health care
