Sports Specific Giving

Sports-Specific Giving is a great way to directly impact the program(s) you are most passionate about.

By making a Sports-Specific Gift, you give Tigers a winning edge when competing against member institutions in the Ohio Valley Conference (OVC).

Each sport below has a foundation account within the Tennessee State Athletic Fund in which donations can be received and used at the discretion of the Director of Athletics and Head Coach.

My experience here has been incredible, the culture here and the family atmosphere is something I really enjoy… As a softball player we really appreciate the alum and fans that give to our program because it shows the how much you care about how we play and represent the University.
