MTSU eagerly anticipates the seventh annual True Blue Give campaign. Slated to take place February 13–15, this event is more than a tradition—it’s a rallying call for our Blue Raider family to invest in the people and programs that define the character of MTSU.
Over three days, the University and community will unite to encourage individuals to make online or text-based donations. These contributions will be directed toward their favorite colleges, departments, or programs, showcasing a commitment to the growth and success of our great University.
This year’s True Blue Give focuses on specific areas that could benefit from additional support. The campaign shines a spotlight on initiatives like the Student Food Pantry, scholarships for future teachers, the June Anderson Center for Women and Nontraditional Students, and the Honors College. Donors are invited to align their contributions with these causes, allowing them to support the aspects of MTSU that resonate most with them.
In the first six years of the True Blue Give, 4,697 alumni, faculty, staff, and friends have rallied to contribute over $2.9 million to the campaign, demonstrating a True Blue dedication to MTSU. Looking back on last year’s successful campaign, nearly 860 generous supporters invested in the University.
In 2023, our Athletics program enjoyed its most successful True Blue Give yet, with almost $200,000 in support for student-athletes. Additional gifts over $29,000 were donated to student emergency needs and support for various student-centric programs, including the library, veterans center, Band of Blue, and the LGBT+ community. We’re excited to meet and exceed last year’s performance with additional generosity.
As the True Blue Give unfolds, every dollar raised will constitute a direct investment in the University’s people and programs. The transformative impact of these contributions will elevate programs, support students, and propel the MTSU community toward new heights.
We encourage our alumni and community supporters to continue to express their love and support for MTSU in a tangible and impactful way, ensuring that the University’s future remains bright and promising.
