Vital to the health of Tennessee Board of Regents institutions' is the ability to raise funds for private support. Donations give institutions the ability to help meet emerging needs and priorities that are set for the campus. On an annual basis, this office collects private giving figures from our institutions. These private gifts are utilized to fund scholarships, special programs and initiatives, and for the construction of new facilities. You may find TBR's policy on foundations at this site - Policy 4:01:07:02 on Foundations.
Additionally, to honor the dedicated philanthropists who graciously donate their time and finances to TBR institutions, we have created two awards - the Regents' Award for Excellence in Philanthropy and the Chancellor's Award for Excellence in Philanthropy.
