Employee Fundraising Campaign

Without the dedication of our staff, Thomas Edison State University would not be the proud institution it is today. Our employees’ high level of participation in the Employee Fundraising Campaign is a reflection of our belief in the University, its mission, and our students. Donations to the Annual Fund and scholarships influence our students’ experience and help them to make a positive impact in their communities.

Frequently Asked Questions

Your gift to the Thomas Edison State University Foundation helps the University fulfill its mission to offer the most advanced, quality higher education available. From establishing new degree programs and expanding our catalog of new courses to enhancing our technology platform and providing more scholarship opportunities, your generosity directly impacts our students’ experience.

Your gift can go to any area of support that you designate on your donation form. Operating expenses are covered by the University budget, so your gift will go to support our students, and programs. The most popular areas of support include the Annual Fund and Scholarships. The Annual Fund supports various initiatives such as program development, scholarships and technology enhancements.

Gifts of any size make a difference. Maximizing participation is a testament to our employee’s belief in what we are doing and a statement to foundations, corporations and prospective students that TESU comprises a community actively involved in the advancement of its mission.

Because of donor generosity, the Annual Fund has supported two new graduate degree programs: the Doctor in Business Administration and the Master of Science in Accounting. It has also supported the CLT Media Creation Studio, the University's Doctor of Nursing Practice degree program, the Master of Arts in Educational Leadership and the MBA degree program just to name a few. In 2017, the Foundation awarded over $250,000 in scholarship support to students.
