Annual Financial Contributions

Alumni Scholarship Fund
Funds are generated through alumni donations and proceeds from programs and events. Funds are distributed as recommended by the Scholarship & Awards Committee annually. Historically, the Board of Directors has set a goal have 100% board participation towards the alumni association scholarship. As this contribution is a gift, it can be counted as a charitable tax contribution.

Vision & Visionaries
Directors are asked to purchase a minimum of one ticket for personal use or to be donated to a worthy member of the Titan community.
