What is True To Tech?

True to Tech True To Tech recognizes all of the university's loyal donors who make a monetary gift to any program or scholarship at Tech for consecutive years. We have alumni who have given for more than 30 consecutive years. As special as these donors are to us, we also greatly appreciate those who have been True To Tech for only 2 years.  During the 2016 calendar year, gifts from 4,105 True To Tech donors totaled more than $1.8 million in support of Tennessee Tech University. In 2016, 169 donors made their second consecutive gift and became eligible to join True To Tech. These new members gave an additional $67,000. Below are just a few ways the $1.8 million received from True To Tech members made a difference last year:

  • Current True To Tech member gifts supported 403 different areas on campus including scholarships, classroom renovations, athletics programs and professional development opportunities—just to name a few.
  • New True To Tech members supported 88 different areas on campus. 
  • All 14 sports within Athletics received one or more gifts. 
  • Approximately one-third of all the various scholarships received at least one gift from a True To Tech donor for a total of 225 different scholarships receiving True To Tech support.
