Big Orange Family Campaign

Join the Journey

The Big Orange Family Campaign is an annual month-long initiative to enhance philanthropy among faculty and staff.

Giving back is an opportunity for faculty and staff to be the Volunteer difference at the University of Tennessee. Participation from our faculty and staff demonstrates that UT is one of the best investments for a potential donor’s philanthropic support. When we give, we inspire alumni and friends to invest in UT.

Faculty and staff have already established a strong history of giving back to the university in many ways. Over the past four years, faculty and staff exceeded our expectations and moved the employee giving percentage from 16 to 59 percent.

This year we invite you to participate in the 2019 Big Orange Family Campaign. Together, we can help our students succeed!

If you made a gift after July 1, 2018, your gift will count towards the campaign.
