Did you know that the “College Fund” is CCI’s preferred designation for annual giving dollars not designated toward a specific program or scholarship?
The College Fund, created in 2009, is designed for use by the Dean to help offset the loss of state allocations for purposes that fall within several broad categories. These areas include support for students, programs, faculty, facilities and outreach. Dean Mike Wirth and all CCI faculty and staff greatly appreciate the support of CCI alumni and friends of the college who have contributed to the College Fund.
If you are interested in contributing to this critical fund, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, call 865-974-3211, or visit our online giving site at CCI College Fund.
Thank you for your support of the CCI!
