Find Your Cause

On the first TC Impact Day, the Teachers College community celebrates the daily contributions of our students, faculty, alumni and staff in making the world a better, more equitable place through education, health and psychology. Whether through a gift to the college, volunteer service, or social media discussion join us in making your impact on Wednesday, April 6.

TEACHERS COLLEGE

Unrestricted gifts to TC enrich the academic experience at the College, from in-classroom and digital instruction, to academic projects and conferences, to the personal and professional development opportunities that prepare students to become changemakers. These gifts preserve and transform the architectural heritage of Teachers College and amplify the TC experience across our community. Help us maximize our impact across the globe with a gift today.

Game-Changing Research

When not in the classroom, TC faculty are pushing boundaries in their fields and in the world. From research on gun violence, sustainability, and food insecurity, the research taking place at TC has real-life implications with actionable outcomes. Fuel this change through a gift in support of our Research Centers.

Support Your Academic Department

Your ambitions and dreams led you to your academic department at TC, where faculty and students continue to work to forge new ground in inquiry and exploration. Support their efforts, your field and its future with a gift to your academic department.

Scholarships & Financial Aid

Whether you wish to support first-generation students or honor a faculty member through your gift, there are different opportunities to support the students who are committed to serving the public good. Your gift will empower voices, disrupt convention, lift up communities, change policy and ultimately drive forward our mission of creating a smarter, healthier, and more equitable world.

Student Emergency Fund

The Wendy M. Dressel Student Emergency Fund aims to ease the financial burden that emergencies can unexpectedly create. From accessing mental health services during the Covid-19 pandemic, to funding temporary housing in the face of a natural disaster, the student emergency fund helps our students when they need it most.

TC Promise Scholars

When you support “TC Promise,” you join us in our commitment to provide much needed financial aid packages to students across disciplines and at all stages of their TC experience. Donors will have the opportunity to hear from a diverse cohort of “TC Promise Scholars” throughout the year, with notes and video messages and small group get togethers (in-person and via Zoom).

Generosity + Unity = TC Promise

Student-Parents

Students with children face unique challenges in higher education that require special considerations across all aspects of the TC experience. Gifts for student-parents assist these continuous learners throughout their time at TC by helping them through the many challenges of successfully completing their studies, caring for their families, and maintaining their own physical and mental health.
