Your gift to the Annual Fund can make the Carson-Newman experience a reality for deserving students. With the rising costs of higher education throughout the country, Carson-Newman has been able to keep the cost of education affordable. Since the Annual Fund is how the University pays its year to year operational costs, gifts to it help C-N meet everyday fiscal needs and helps keep the cost of tuition down. Gifts designated to the Annual Fund directly enhance every aspect of Carson-Newman's education experience, from outstanding dedicated faculty to state of the art technology, improved facilities, to academic merit scholarships and financial assistance.

There are several ways in which you can support the Annual Fund. You can make a contribution in honor/memory of your favorite professor, staff member, coach, family member, or friend. You can also show your support to your reunion class by giving during your reunion years. Participation by alumni means even more than the size of a gift. Many institutions like Carson-Newman seek foundation and corporate gifts to increase endowment funds, enhance and construct buildings, and strive for the continuance of investing in education excellence. One of the measures used by foundations and corporations to consider giving to Carson-Newman is how well alumni support their own alma mater.

The Annual Fund is Carson-Newman's margin of excellence. By supporting programs and services inside and outside the classroom, gifts to the Carson-Newman Annual Fund help maintain a superior, Christian liberal arts education for which Carson-Newman is known.

Please feel free to contact the Annual Fund Office with any concerns you have related to monthly gifts, gifts by credit card, or any other questions. You can contact us by phone or e-mail: Karina Fox 865-471-3458 or  We look forward to working with you to make Carson-Newman University an even better place.

Your gifts to the Annual Fund, in any amount are greatly appreciated.
