Annual Giving

What is Annual Giving?

Every year, we call TROY’s loyal alumni, parents, students, faculty and staff to ask them to support the University. The money raised in this drive goes into the Annual Fund which impacts virtually everything at the University.

Our mission is to encourage donors to support the University at every dollar level and to help spread the message that gifts of all sizes are welcomed and appreciated by the University. Annual support from alumni, friends, faculty and staff is a vital element to Troy University’s mission of maintaining a tradition of excellence in education and public service.

Why Does Annual Giving Matter?

Annual gifts enable Troy University to provide resources not covered by tuition or state funding. No student at the University graduates without having been touched in some way by annual gifts from alumni and friends.

Your contribution can make an impact immediately by providing a student with a scholarship and helping faculty, staff and students attend academic conferences. Your gift can also have a long-term effect by helping us purchase equipment, or other needed resources.

Every contribution – regardless of size – will make a difference for our students, faculty, and staff.

Many of the traditions, activities and programs you loved as a TROY student, along with those you have come to enjoy as a friend of the institution, can remain a part of the University through annual support. Click here to make a gift today in support of your TROY Trojans!

Faculty/Staff Campaign

2019 Faculty and Staff Campaign Form

One of TROY's greatest strengths is its dedicated faculty and staff. One important way faculty and staff members can demonstrate their commitment to the University is through support of the Faculty and Staff Campaign for the Annual Fund. As a member of the Troy University faculty and staff, you are the guiding force behind this University’s remarkable success and have made TROY a vibrant community with a growing reputation. When faculty and staff say “YES” in supporting TROY, it sends a powerful message to alumni and friends outside of the University. Support of TROY demonstrates a belief in the programs faculty and staff work with on a daily basis. A high percentage of participation encourages others to support the University as well. Collectively, our efforts and commitment to our University have made a huge difference.


During your time at Troy University, you have been a valued and vital member of TROY’s faculty and staff. Your dedication and abilities are found at the core of what makes the TROY experience great. You make a difference in the lives of our students, and you can continue to help provide new opportunities to our ever-growing family of Trojan Warriors by donating to the University’s Faculty Staff Campaign!

Your generous gift increases TROY’s ability to provide scholarships, faculty and staff awards, professional development and exciting improvements in academic programs. Participating in this campaign not only continues to help build TROY’s remarkable success and reputation within our communities, but it also shows prospective corporate and foundation donors that our faculty and staff believe in and support the future of Troy University!

There are many options for giving. In fact, with the simple click of a button, you can direct your gift to your choice of college, school, unit, fund or area of greatest need. You can also choose to give to TROY’s general scholarship fund or other areas of your choosing. Thank you for your generosity and heart for TROY. By working together to bring the best to the brightest, your legacy at our great University will be felt around the globe and through the successful careers of our students.

With Trojan Pride,

Becky V. Watson

Associate Vice Chancellor for Development

Faculty/Staff Giving

Phonathon Program

The Phonathon Program is held year-round. It is an opportunity for TROY alumni to talk with a current student and inform the University of any change of address, job or family information. Our student callers speak with approximately 100,000 alumni and friends via our state-of-the-art call center every year.

The Phonathon program provides an opportunity to make alumni aware of the latest campus endeavors and invite their support of the TROY Annual Fund with an annual gift. The TROY Annual Fund supports a wide range of programs; including scholarships, equipment, faculty and student development and the library areas that add real value to every student on a daily basis.

Our student callers are energetic, enthusiastic and love TROY. They are the “authority” on what is happening here. Many of them are the very students who receive financial assistance through gifts to the Annual Fund. When one of our callers contact you, please take time to talk with them and please be generous with your support.
