Learn more about the Tusculum Fund, your way to help your Alma Mater!

Posted on 26 July 2011 by eestes@tusculum.edu

Providing technology resources for students is one of the areas of the Tusculum Fund.

You may have seen the Tusculum Fund mentioned in a magazine or other communication from the College and wondered what it is.

The Tusculum Fund is very important to the success of the College and provides resources to the College to meet its mission of providing a quality education to your student.

The Tusculum Fund is the primary fund through which alumni and friends provide unrestricted support to the College, allowing Tusculum to use the funds where they are most urgently needed while at the same time supplementing the overall operating budget.

This support benefits current students in continuing to reach their educational goals and serves as a benchmark of the involvement of our alumni with their Alma Mater for funding decisions made by foundations and corporations.

Areas of the Tusculum Fund include scholarships, academic programs, technology, the library, Pioneer Club (athletics) and area sof greatest need.


Every gift to the Tusculum Fund matters. Participation in the Tusculum Fund, no matter the size of the gift, is viewed as a measure of alumni satisfaction, demonstrating alumni loyalty, which influences the  College’s ability to secure grants from corporations and foundations.

Gifts of ANY and ALL sizes from alumni, parents and friends of the College are critical to Tusculum’s current and future success as a renown liberal arts college. Colleges that achieve a higher percent in alumni giving participation are, in general, more highly respected and receive more funding opportunities.

There are annual campaigns that reach different constituencies of the College. The Phonathan focuses on alumni and the annual Faculty and Staff Campaign involves current employees of the College. The Senior Class Gift Campaign involves current students, who give for a specific project on campus. Recent Senior Class Gift campaigns have resulted in refurbished campus entrance signs, new lamps for the Arch, a case to display academic awards and a sidewalk from Katherine Hall to Shiloh Road.


The Parent Campaign invites current students to go above and beyond tuition and enhance the everyday and immediate needs faced by Tusculum. The Tusculum Fund allows parents to designate their gift to a particular program, providing Pioneer parents with another opportunity to directly impact the quality of their child’s education today and to ensure the  continued growth of Tusculum College in the future.

2011-2012 Pioneer Club Campaign Committee named

Posted on 20 July 2011 by srichey@tusculum.edu

Tusculum College has announced the committee members for this year’s Pioneer Club Campaign, according to 2011-2012 Pioneer Club Campaign Chairman Larry Coughlin.

Named to this year’s committee are Bill Henry, Thom Wood, a 1989 alumnus; Ken Earl, a 1998 and 2000 alumnus; Jackie Rose, a 1974 alumna; Doug DeBusk, a 1995 alumnus, Ray White and James Smith.

The newly formed committee will work with Coughlin to support student-athletes through the Pioneer Club. They will promote and attend special Pioneer Club events and will seek to encourage others in the community to support the program and the student-athletes at Tusculum College.

According to Coughlin, the committee members were selected because of their willingness to support the Pioneer Club programs and the students of Tusculum College.

The Pioneer Club is the college’s vehicle to provide athletic scholarships and program support to all athletic programs. The program began in 1991 and is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. According to Coughlin, with the help and support of friends of the college, every year in the history of the program the goals have been met in both membership and dollars raised.

The goals for the 2011-2012 campaign are $100,000 and 350 members. Members of the Pioneer Club, depending on their level, are invited to tailgates, hospitality suites and other special events prior to selected home games, matches or tournaments. Members may also receive discounts at the Tusculum College Bookstore, game passes and public address announcement recognition during games. For more information about the Pioneer Club, visit the Tusculum College Pioneer Athletics website at http://www.tusculumpioneers.com/page.asp?articleID=1575 or contact Kim Kidwell ’99 at 423-636-7303 or at kkidwell@tusculum.edu.
