Employee Giving

Home  /  Give

Employees are the heart and soul of SOWELA Technical Community College! No matter what your role is, you make a difference in the lives of our students every day. Together, our gifts make a statement to those outside our institution that we wholeheartedly believe in our mission, and so should they. Every dollar given goes directly to the College and helps provide students a high-quality comprehensive education.

What is the Tigers Give Campaign?

The Tigers Give Campaign is an annual fundraising effort to strengthen our impact through donations to The Foundation. It is an opportunity for faculty and staff members to support programs, projects, funds and scholarships for SOWELA Technical Community College. All donations are 100% tax deductible.

What will my donation support?

Employees can choose to allocate their gift to the General Scholarship Fund, Faculty and Staff Professional Development Fund, Student Emergency Fund, Technology and Equipment Fund, or make an unrestricted gift.

How much should I give?

Every year, we strive for 100% participation. Giving is highly personal and we encourage everyone to consider an amount that is meaningful to you.

How can I make a gift?

  • Payroll Deductions
  • Credit Card
  • Check
  • Cash

How will my gift be recognized?

All participants will receive their choice of a SOWELA bag or SOWELA Bluetooth speaker and your name will be displayed on our social media pages and in the College's annual report.
