True To Tech - Loyal Giving


What is True To Tech?

Tennessee Tech University’s True To Tech program was designed in 2001 to recognize the loyal donors who make a monetary gift to any program or scholarship at Tech for consecutive years.  Once a donor makes a second gift in a row (annually), s/he becomes True To Tech. Each year, True To Tech donors receive a True To Tech packet that includes a magnet and window cling decal showing the number of consecutive years the donor has given to Tech.  Decals and magnets can be seen across campus (on filing cabinets, doors, and refrigerators) and across the state on vehicles. We are proud of our True To Tech donors are always thrilled to see donors displaying their support of Tech.

Tech’s loyal donors have been True To Tech between 2 years and 50 years, and the program continues to grow!  There are currently more than 2,400 True To Tech households who provide their generous support across all schools, colleges, and athletic programs. True To Tech donors are the most engaged, the most loyal, and the most passionate about Tech’s success. To date, True To Tech donors have already provided nearly $500,000 of support across all Schools, Colleges and Athletic Programs. Tech is thankful to receive this level of generosity.

In 2017, more than 2,300 True To Tech participants provided:
•Nearly $1.9 million, that was invested across all Schools, Colleges and Athletic Programs.
•$438,000 to support 160 privately-funded scholarships for talented and deserving students.
•Partial funding for student travel, student competitions and classroom supplies and renovations.
