This #GivingTuesday, the Chattanooga State Foundation will focus on raising funds to support Chattanooga State students in crisis. When unforeseen financial emergencies occur, it often
prevents students from staying in school or completing their program of study. Based on Fall 2017 numbers, 67% of our students were Pell-eligible, meaning they are low income, and 82% of our students indicated they have to work at least part-time to help meet school and family obligations.
You can help keep a student from dropping out when you make your gift to the Chattanooga State Foundation’s Helping Hands Fund. Those who are interested in joining Chattanooga State Foundation’s initiative can visit give.chattanoogastate.edu and select Helping Hands Fund. One hundred percent of your donation goes to the Helping Hands Fund which assists students with housing, utilities, groceries, minor car repairs like a flat tire, transportation like a bus pass, daycare and other non-routine expenses.
Chattanooga State is honored to partner with Causeway, United Way of Greater Chattanooga, The Community Foundation of Greater Chattanooga, Generosity Trust, the Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce, and many other local nonprofits to participate in #GivingTuesday.
