UTK Development starts ‘micro/crowd’ funding campaign

The UT Office of Alumni Affairs and Development is sponsoring the Impact Big Ideas program, the new annual giving campaign designed to allow UT givers to connect to and support specific projects and activities carried out by UT faculty, staff and students.

Scott Rabenold, vice chancellor for Development & Alumni Affairs, said the Impact Big Ideas campaign has been launched and will focus on a “micro/crowd funding program.” Twelve projects have already been identified and will receive publicity help from Development & Alumni Affairs. Included in the dozen are Alternative Fall Break, Volunteers on Wall Street, Neuroscience Study Abroad, and Tennessee Family Impact Seminars. Rabenold called on departments to apply for future projects that will emerge as funding for the first 12 is completed.
