Helping Hands for Students


Save the Date for #GivingTuesday2021 on Tuesday, November 30. 

Our theme this year is Helping Hands for Students. The funds highlighted in this year’s Giving Tuesday focus on holistic student support. The funds include the General Scholarship Fund, Student Opportunity Fund, Homeless Student Scholarship and the Pellissippi Pantry. We are excited to announce that we have $20,000 in matching gifts to double your donation! Please join us in thanking our match partners, First Horizon Bank, Y12 Federal Credit Union, Regions Bank and a generous anonymous donor.

All gifts given to one of our Helping Hands for Students funds between now and November 30 are eligible for the matching funds.

“I wanted to send a thank you note to the Student Opportunity Fund, one of this year’s Helping Hands for Students funds, and its’ donors for saving my family from imminent homelessness and preventing me from dropping out of nursing school. They provided the money that I needed to pay my rent. Without this, I would have had to drop out of school.
I am a single mother of twin toddlers, one special needs, and I know that obtaining my nursing degree will ensure a solid future for us. I just need to keep fighting to get there. Your donation is making that possible for me.
Thank you so much for making a difference in not just my life, but in my twins lives as well.” Raven
Raven is scheduled to graduate with a degree in Nursing this spring!
