Your gift to the TU Annual Fund provides the critical foundation of support the University needs to continue toward its goal of being recognized as one of the nation’s Top 50 institutions of higher education.
The breadth of financial support from alumni is one of the benchmarks used in national rankings of universities through surveys such as those conducted US News and World Report and The Princeton Review. In other words, it doesn’t matter how big your gift is but, rather, that you are counted as donor to the University.
It is impossible to overstate the importance of the TU Annual Fund and its impact on the day-to-day life of TU. Budgeted funds are earmarked for specific purposes and are often allocated before the fiscal year even begins. Annual Fund support, on the other hand, provides the needed flexibility to take advantage of unexpected opportunities or address unforeseen challenges that may have no other dedicated funding source.
You may direct your gift to any area of the University you wish to support. These may include the general scholarship fund, any academic departments, your favorite athletic program, or to the University in general. And remember – your support of the TU Annual Fund is greatly appreciated!
