Let’s do something big together!
We’ve set an ambitious goal of raising $30,000 for our Student Opportunity Fund during this year’s #GivingTuesday campaign on November 27. These funds will allow us to provide a hand up to more than 100 students over the next year who are at risk of dropping out due to unforeseen financial emergencies.
The Pellissippi State Student Opportunity Fund provides assistance to students in crisis and helps to break down barriers that can prevent our students from moving forward with their education. Assistance might include help with purchasing textbooks, tuition, transportation, childcare, or other types of emergency assistance.
“For many of our students, paying for college is a huge challenge, and sometimes the unexpected happens and their educational plan and dream do not align with life’s current reality. The Student Opportunity Fund has ‘saved’ many students who find themselves in this type of situation and reach out for help.” ~ Dick Smelser
“Our Student Opportunity Fund ensures that students do not have to forgo or delay their educational dreams just because they have experienced an unexpected financial setback or are unable to afford their books. Because of the Student Opportunity Fund, we can help our students stay on their path and finish strong.” ~ Travis Loveday.
We are asking you to join the charge in giving to reach our transformative goal on Tuesday, November 27. The first $12,000 in donations will be matched by some of our generous donors.
If you are passionate about other programs at the college, you can also give a #GivingTuesday gift towards one of those areas by selecting your fund from the drop down menu below.
