Why Giving Matters

Five Reasons to Support TESU
  1. TESU’s mission is global We are one of a few institutions that offer the depth and breadth of distance learning courses to motivated adults. Delivering flexible, affordable education all over the world can be expensive. Making a difference is worth it.
  2. Every gift makes a difference Most gifts to Thomas Edison State University Foundation are under $1,000. But together they add up to thousands for scholarship, technology, and new programs.
  3. Tuition only covers part of the real cost of a Thomas Edison State University education The generosity of alumni, friends and organizations help to keep tuition costs affordable for everyone.
  4. Most major gifts are restricted The majority of endowed gifts are directed toward a particular school, department, program or purpose. Annual, expendable gifts provide immediate, flexible support.
  5. State funding has substantially declined Although TESU is a public university, state funding covers only a very small percentage of the University's operating budget.
