Giving to TROY creates opportunities for students

December 8, 2016

Donors who contribute to Troy University’s Annual Fund help the University in a variety of ways, from supporting groundbreaking research by faculty members, to helping purchase equipment and resources.

But perhaps the most lasting impact made by TROY donors are the many students who attend TROY with the help of Annual Fund supported scholarship programs.

“Each year, hundreds of students are able to attend TROY thanks to scholarships that are supported by donors to Troy University,” said Bronda Denison, Director of Annual Giving. “Many of these students wouldn’t be able to attend college at all without this support.
