UTK SCHOLARSHIP CHALLENGE
We’re raffling off one of our Vol Nation jerseys Thursday, February 22nd.
Charleston’s UT Knoxville Alumni Chapter is starting a 5 year goal of $25,000 to establish a scholarship endowment. Establishing an endowment in a chapter’s name puts the raised funds in perpetuity, which means that its interest allows the chapter to award an annual scholarship to a student from their area as long as the University of Tennessee exists. To kickstart our efforts we are giving away one of our embroidered Vol Nation jerseys on Thursday, February 22nd. The raffle will be conducted in person at Charleston Beer Works, but you don’t need to attend to win the grand prize.
How to Win
Make a direct donation to our scholarship fund by following the link below. Forward your confirmation email to firstname.lastname@example.org and your name will be entered into the drawing for each $5 donated (max 4). The grand prize will be drawn on Facebook Live Thursday, February 22nd around 9pm.
UTK ALUMNI CHAPTERS
The 56 Alumni Chapters Embody the Meaning of Tennessee ‘Volunteers’
The national efforts of the UTK Alumni Chapter Program continues to strengthen the reach and impact of Vol Nation. The 56 chapters across the country serve as active representatives of our alma mater outside of Knoxville, which is symbolic to the historic reasons for why we were named the University of Tennessee ‘Volunteers’. These official extensions of the university cheer on the Vols together at TV viewing parties and enjoy other exciting programs and networking events. They also spread the Volunteer spirit by giving back to their communities and raising scholarship funds to support local students that choose to attend the University of Tennessee. One of the challenges the chapters encounter is reaching the alumni and supporters of UT in their respective areas. The goal of the Vol Nation Golf Classic is to create exposure and get more people involved in the chapters that are active in their areas, or even inspire leaders to establish new chapters if one isn’t present.
Support Vol Nation
The overall mission for the Vol Nation Golf Classic in Charleston, SC is to become an annual tradition for alumni chapters to showcase how much fun they have representing UT across the country and help inspire others to continue to serve our students and university through alumni chapter involvement. Please consider these sponsorship options to support one of the 50+ alumni chapter scholarships and strengthen Vol Nation countrywide!
These options still support the fundraising efforts for the chapter scholarships, but they do not come with a tax deductible receipt.
