The Maxey Match


Special friends of Pellissippi State, Curt and Helene Maxey, are pleased to announce the Maxey Match. Through November 30, the Maxey’s will match the first $1,000 contributed by Facebook friends. That will get matched again by other generous donors for a total of a 3:1 match.

The funds include: 

The Pellissippi Pantry proves food assistance for our students who are facing hunger across all five of our campuses.

The Student Opportunity Fund provides emergency assistance to help prevent students from dropping out of school due to a financial crisis. The types of assistance vary from assistance with textbooks, tuition, transportation, childcare and other forms of emergency assistance.

The Homeless Student Scholarship seeks to provide assistance to stabilize the situation for a student facing homelessness. In addition to providing emergency assistance, the students are connected with possible housing options through relationships with community partners. 

The General Scholarship Fund is the scholarship with the most flexible criteria to meet the needs of our Pellissippi State students. It may be awarded as a standalone scholarship or in some cases, it may be awarded in conjunction with other scholarship awards to help address an emergency need. Since 2008, 368 students have received General Scholarship assistance totaling $196,608.

*Please join us in thanking our other match partners, First Horizon Bank, Y12 Federal Credit Union, Regions Bank and a generous anonymous donor.

Give to make a difference in a student's life and triple your gift!
