Trevecca announces official Giving Day projects

With Trevecca’s first Giving Day a little more than a month away, officials unveiled today 14 projects that will be highlighted during the one-day event. The projects touch all aspects of University life, from scholarships and intramurals to research, mission trips and the work of the Trevecca Urban Farm. 

“Donors are invited to make a gift of any size during a single 24-hour period to support any Trevecca program or scholarship,” said Peg Cooning, vice president for external relations. “We do have special priority projects that are being promoted by different areas of campus. No matter what area of interest, our goal is that 500 Trevecca alumni and friends will say yes to making a gift.” 

Trevecca Giving Day is set for April 16. 

The projects include: 

  • Business and IT scholarships made in honor of a favorite professor
  • Pastoral development through the Trevecca Center for Wesleyan-Holiness Studies; 
  • Health sciences addition, to build a state-of-the-art health sciences facility to house Trevecca’s physician assistant, nursing and healthcare administration programs; 
  • Intramural field, making it possible to resurface and turf the current intramural field for student use; 
  • Music scholarships helping Trevecca recruit and retain strong music majors;
  • Student teaching fund, helping student teachers offset costly fees during the final and most important part of their teacher training; 
  • Science and research equipment helping expand the undergraduate science majors’ experience 
  • Social work scholarship growing available funds available through the Julie Runyan Scholarship Endowment;
  • Campus bike racks supporting SGA’s efforts to grow the number of students who use bicycles for campus commuting;
  • Salvation Army scholarships, assisting Trevecca students who are dependents of Salvation Army officers through growing the Michael and Gloria Reagan Endowed Scholarship;
  • Trevecca Urban Farm; supporting the Urban Farm’s outreach into the community;
  • Worship arts scholarships; growing the Chuck Lovell Scholarship Endowment to assist worship arts students;
  • Student Needs Emergency Fund, helping students who have unexpected personal emergency needs.
  • School of Graduate and Continuing Studies Difference-Maker Scholarship, supporting graduate and non-traditional students using their degrees to make a difference in their workplaces or personal lives. 

All gifts made during Trevecca Giving Day—which begins at 12:01 a.m. and closes at midnight on April 16—will support the University and/or the donor’s selected project. Gifts are a way to directly invest in the lives of current and future Trevecca students, Cooning said. 

“Your gift, combined with those of hundreds of other Trevecca Giving Day donors, will not only help to make scholarships or projects become realities but also have a direct impact on the lives of current and future students,” Cooning said. “By joining together with the greater Trevecca family on Giving Day, you’re demonstrating your commitment to the University and the Christian community that sets us apart.”
