Giving@TC: Supporting Students through the TC Fund
Published in TC Today - Volume 36, No. 2
“There is often a gap between the cost of attendance and the resources that a student or family can allocate toward the TC education,” says Thomas Rock, Executive Director of Enrollment Services. “A gift of this amount would help to close that gap and help decrease the financial burden many students face when considering enrolling at Teachers College.”
“Raising spendable funds to support students for the here and now builds our capacity to reach our number one priority of increasing student financial aid,” says TC Fund Director Susan Scherman. “Participation in this program will reinforce our ability to offer competitive financial aid packages that will attract and retain the gifted students whose achievements will advance TC’s legacy of excellence in scholarship, policy and practice.”
In addition to enjoying John Dewey Circle benefits at the Scholar’s Circle level, donors to the Annual Fund Scholars Program will have the opportunity to meet the students they support at the College’s annual scholarship celebration in order to learn about their work.
Donors can make multiple gifts in $5,000 increments, and choose to support one student for several years, multiple students in a single year, or both. A $5,000 gift can also be made in installments over the course of a year.
“The TC Fund is major source of general scholarship support, and this new named scholarship opportunity sends a strong reminder to donors that even a relatively small amount of money given through the Fund can create significant benefits for students right away,” Scherman said.
