Go beyond: Support your Pioneers with fiscal year-end giving

“The support of others made it possible for me to go to Transy and it changed my life.  I want to change the lives of others!”

John Kuchenbrod ‘92

For nearly 240 years, students have come to Transylvania seeking a quality education and an exceptional college experience. We are grateful for that profound act of trust.  So many want to pay it forward with support for future and current Pioneers long after they have left these hallowed halls.

Did you know your annual gifts immediately impact our students? The Annual Fund supports all aspects of the learning opportunities offered at Transy.  The largest portion of the Annual Fund is dedicated to scholarships supporting 98% of our students. Experiences such as study abroad, the 100 Doors mentoring program and internships as well as curricular and library offerings also benefit from Annual Fund contributions.  As you can see, your annual donations will help us to maintain the level of excellence for which a degree from Transylvania University is well known.

The investment you can make in future Pioneers ensures that our recognized tradition of providing educational excellence continues for the next generation.  Your participation influences Transy’s ranking in national publications and is used by foundations as a decision factor for awarding sizable grants. A gift – of any size – helps secure these significant funds.

“I give because generous alumni before me made it possible for me to attend Transy…and I hope to be a small part of future generations having the same opportunities that I had.”

Laura Leathers ‘99
