Give Day for Chattanooga State is Wednesday

Wednesday is Give Day for Chattanooga State. It helps keep students in college!

Many students face financial barriers, such as food insecurities, auto repairs, high utility bills, etc., which force them to work more and focus less on college or even drop out.

Please donate on April 24 at chattanoogastate.edu/donate

By donating on Give Day your gift will be tripled up to $5,000 per fund thanks to Unum Group insurance company headquartered in Chattanooga.

The following funds help remove those barriers and provide skill development opportunities otherwise out of financial reach.

  • The Tiger Cupboard is the college’s food pantry, which ensures the campus community has access to food. Last year, the Tiger Cupboard helped meet the food needs of 255 students.
  • The Helping Hands Fund provides emergency support to students experiencing a financial crisis. Last year, the Fund responded to just under 100 requests and distributed more than $33,000.
  • The SkillsUSA Fund ensures that students can showcase their talents by participating in skills-based state and national competitions. No student competitor misses out on representing the school due to financial constraints. Students participating in SkillsUSA competitions earn impactful tools, including job opportunities, scholarships, and grants.
