Paying It Forward, Right Now

A growing number of TC donors are supplementing their long-term provisions for the College with scholarships that help current students 

Since 1914, when Teachers College's founder, Grace Dodge, endowed a scholarship that is still paying dividends, TC’s supporters have planned for the College and its students in their wills. Today, with education costs rising for an increasingly diverse student population, TC is encouraging such future-minded donors to pay it forward by making gifts now to establish named, endowed scholarships. The reward is seeing their gifts supporting a current student, whom they can meet and even accompany across the stage at TC’s Convocation. Recently  four of TC's existing planned giving donors made  outright gifts establishing their schol­arships now. They are:

Support Student Scholarship

The biggest priority of TC’s Campaign, Where the Future Comes First, is to support current and future students. You can:

  • Pledge $50,000 to create a new endowed scholarship in your own name or someone else’s.
  • Contribute to an existing tribute or program fund scholarship
  • Support a TC Fund Scholar or designate your TC Fund gift to financial aid.

Former TC Alumni Council member Joan Amron (M.Ed. ’76, M.A. ’70), who has created a need-based scholarship for a TC student interested in pursuing studies in Applied Science of Learning & Special Education and/or Intellectual Disabilities/Autism, in the department of Health & Behavior Studies.

Drs. Lily E. Christ (Ed.D. ’67) and Duane M. Christ, who have structured their investment in the College’s Charitable Gift Annuity Fund and the Pooled In­come Fund to endow a new HI-TECH PREP Math Endowed Scholarship Fund for students in Math Technologies. The award is designed to “encourage, motivate, interest and award future elementary and secondary school teachers and administrators and professionals” to “influence education at all levels in a better understanding of mathematics.”

Anne Richardson Gayles-Felton (M.A. ’47), a nationally recognized teacher educator and Professor Emerita at Florida A & M University. (Click here to read a story about Dr. Felton.)

Curriculum & Teaching alumna Thelma Shafran (M.A. ’54), who has endowed a need-based scholarship to support “students who do not come from privileged backgrounds,” with a particular focus on African-American women or graduates of majority African-American public schools who have demonstrated a sustained commitment to the education of African-American girls.
