Donations to Carson-Newman enhance educational offerings and provide invaluable scholarship assistance. An outstanding education at an affordable price is, in and of itself, a remarkable gift. But, because a Carson-Newman education helps students become lifelong learners who are able to adapt and respond to an ever changing world, a contribution is a gift that keeps giving.
It is a gift in two tenses – present and future. Each unit of support has an immediate impact and becomes something with eternal significance. It changes today and can change lives forever.
Given present economic circumstances, as well as the number of noble causes, donors must weigh philanthropic options seriously. To that end, donors also consider constancy, or, as alumnus and supporter Dr. David McConnell says of those who keep C-N’s mission vibrant, “Their goal has never changed, and that’s to glorify God.”
