The purpose of the 2015 "Grow Our Endowment" campaign is simple: we want to build the base of principal within our TSU College of Engineering Alumni Scholarship Endowment so that it produces 'more' interest income for CoE student scholarships.
The goal is to increase our endowment's principal base to $500,000 by TSU Homecoming 2015.
We've already confirmed a total of $23,000 in pledges toward our campaign goal of $200,000. We have $177,000 left to raise.
We are personally asking you to commit to contribute starting at the $1,000 level (or more).
If 200 or more TSU CoE alumni commit to give a gift to our Endowment at the $1,000 level or above by October 16th, we will reach our goal! In recognition of your $1,000 or larger gift, you will receive a white hardhat with our beloved "TSU CoE" logo for you to wear when we present our BIG CHECK to TSU at the 2015 Homecoming Game!
If you cannot give at the $1,000 level, commit to give what you can.
To give via US-MAIL, make your check payable to "TSU Foundation". Please indicate your gift designation in the memo section of your check to "TSU CoE Alumni Scholarship Endowment "and mail your gift to the following address:
3500 John A. Merritt Blvd.
Campus Box 9542
Nashville, TN 37209
If you work for a corporation that provides corporate gift matching benefits, we suggest that you to use their program with your gift to DOUBLE or TRIPLE your contribution. Check www.matchinggift.com/tnstate/ to see if your company provides your corporate gift matching benefits.
And don't forget: YOUR CONTRIBUTION IS 100% TAX-DEDUCTIBLE!
(2) SPREAD THE WORD AMONG OUR FELLOW TSU ENGINEERING ALUMS! Commit to get at least 3 other TSU CoE alumni or supporters to give. Forward this e-mail to your network of friends and fellow alumni, and let them know what we're trying to accomplish in the name of engineering scholarship at TSU!
