Giving Tuesday Now

Giving Tuesday Now Is May 5

You can participate at volstarter.utk.edu/helpvols and your donation can be doubled!

Your gift to the Student Emergency Fund provides assistance to Tennessee students in need due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Several of our own UTCSW students have been recipients of assistance from this fund.

For some UT students, this challenging time has meant the loss of income from a job they depended on, loss of access to technology to continue academic studies, and/or basic needs such as healthcare or food security.

  • More than 375 students have applied for assistance related to COVID-19 through the Student Emergency Fund.
  • Student needs include technology (laptops and hotspots), food and grocery expenses, assistance to pay utilities, short term housing expenses, and other basic needs.
  • Students apply for the funds through the Office of the Dean of Students

Pilot Company and First Horizon have given $20,000 in match funds for Giving Tuesday Now. Donors can have their gifts matched (dollar for dollar), until that $20,000 is reached (ex. A $25 gift becomes a $50 gift; a $100 gift becomes a $200 gift).

Make your donation today and make a difference for our students!
