There are many ways to give to support the students at Pellissippi State!

The Pellissippi State Foundation accepts cash gifts, bargain sales, bequests under wills and trusts, charitable gift annuities, charitable gift remainders, life estate gifts, charitable lead trusts, revocable living trusts, beneficiary designations and in-kind gifts. 

The Foundation doesn’t accept crops or livestock, oil, gas or mineral rights, restricted securities, partnership interests, time-share interests, and any gifts of personal or real property that conflict with the Foundation’s mission, that would be too costly to repair or maintain or that do not withstand a property analysis.
