How does TGBAA support Golden Bears?
TGBAA is committed to raising funds to support students and enhance their experiences at WVU Tech. The funds raised by the TGBAA are used to support the initiatives, programs and events at WVU Tech. Some of the events and activities TGBAA has supported include:
- STEM Outreach Initiatives (Discover Engineering Day, Introduce Girl to Engineering Day, K-12 outreach throughout the year)
- Tech Summer Camps (STEM, Forensics, Nursing)
- Student Life and Career Services programs (career fair, mock interviews, etiquette dinner, new student orientations, etc.)
- University events (homecoming, graduation, etc.)
- Alumni events
Donations to the TGBAA general fund will be distributed among several outreach initiatives. Half of the contribution will be applied to the TGBAA Scholarship Fund and 50% will support the initiatives and programs in the bulleted list above.
UPDATE (May 2020): To address the economic impacts of COVID-19 on students and their families, TGBAA voted in their May meeting to shift 25% of any donation received between May 2020 and May 2021 to the WVU Tech President Fund, which is a fund that can assist students with emergency support needs. This could help bridge the financial gap for students who are impacted by the current health care crisis.
Honoring our Supporters
Alumni Legacy Circle
TGBAA has launched a new recognition program for those who have supported TGBAA and WVU Tech in the Golden Bear Alumni Legacy Circle.
Those who are recognized will need to give permission for their name to be listed. Giving totals won't be provided, but donors will be listed within their respective giving level. Those who have given at least $250 since 2010 will be recognized for their total giving to any WVU Tech fund and listed at that appropriate fund level. We wish to honor our alumni who are paying forward the gift of a Tech education.
