Making Our Communities Stronger

Join SOWELA’s Employee Giving Campaign!

Keep philanthropy from becoming an endangered species! Join this year’s employee giving campaign Tigers Give.

Why Give?
Here’s why fellow employees give:

“I give to the SOWELA Foundation because I have been fortunate enough in life to have people invest in me. Now it’s my turn to invest and I can’t think of any better way than to invest in the students of SOWELA.”

“I started working for SOWELA in September 1991. I was transferred to Morgan Smith September 1997 and happily returned to SOWELA in June 2011. Although I was not always on this campus, I was still working in the same system. I watched SOWELA go through many challenges and changes. From being torn apart in 2005 by Hurricane Rita to what I see today is absolutely amazing. Without the support and contributions from the business, industry, people of this community, and employees, it would not be where it is today.”

Your tax-deductible donation can help students, faculty, and staff get their paws on the resources they need to be successful, such as:

  • Support student access and success through scholarship awards.
  • Provide additional funding for your department or program.
  • Supplement faculty travel to attend industry-specific conferences.
  • Allow funding for staff members to attend position-related training.
  • Purchase supplies, equipment, and technology to supplement teaching and learning.
  • Enhance the college campus, facilities, and grounds.
