Acorns to Oaks

Since 1851, Carson-Newman has helped students reach their full potential as educated citizens and worldwide servant-leaders. The Acorn to Oaks campaign, which launches with the addition of the Drama and Ted Russell Center, is an important next step to further our mission and answer the desperate need for well-trained healthcare leaders. We hope you’ll accept this invitation to join us on this journey.

  • Monthly Giving Options

    Monthly giving is an easy and convenient way to support Carson-Newman University. Plus it is an affordable way to make a significant annual gift. Your monthly gifts provide Carson-Newman with a reliable, steady flow of income. Without these funds, the University would not be able to plan for its future in a strategic way. Together these gifts have an enormous impact on student success and teaching excellence which play a vital role in Carson-Newman's continuing success.

    C-N currently has four options for monthly giving:

    1. Contact us for a form to do a monthly automatic draft from your bank account. This is the most secure way to make a monthly donation. These gifts are processed on the 20th of each month. You can tell us how long to continue with this gift.

    2. Contact us and we will send you Business Reply envelopes so you can mail your monthly donation to us.

    3. Contact us with your credit card information and we will process the gift on the 15th of each month. You can tell us how long to continue with this gift.
