Launches its National Student Scholarship Fundraiser Leading up to the 100th YEAR ANNIVERSITY of Tennessee State University “THE MILLION DOLLAR CHALLENGE”


The Pledge

We, the Alumni will raise at least One Million Dollars ($1, 000,000) between now and 2012 to give to the University for the sole purpose of presenting in and out of state scholarships. We do this with the assurance that scholarships will be awarded based on merit as well as geographic origin of the funding and the student awardees.


The Plan

A Committee of 1000 Chairpersons will sign up to identify potential contributors, communicate the task, its benefits and persuade 10 people to donate $100 each minimum. (Greater amounts will be accepted and appreciated) The chairpersons will mail the $100 or greater donations made payable directly to the “TSU Foundation” (all ten donations should be individual checks) with a note in the memo section indicating the check is for the “ TSU Challenge” and mail to the National Office, for processing. In turn, each donor will receive a receipt from the Foundation for tax purposes. Some suggested strategies for attracting potential donors:


1. Families with a TSU Legacy (multiple graduates/alums) could appoint/select a family member to represent them as the chair. The appointed chair would share this proposal with other family members, solicit the individual payments and follow the submission process


2. Fraternities and Sororities could appoint chairs from their organization as a whole or the numerous lines and create competition. The chair would make the pitch and ensure the ongoing competitive energy results in a wealth of donations.


3. You, as a loyal Tennessee State University Alumnus/Alumna, are encouraged to take up the banner and volunteer to accept the responsibility to be a chair. Your enthusiasm, passion and big blue allegiance are what will lead a big idea and make your personal appeal irresistible!
