Arkansas Tech Foundation
The purpose of the Arkansas Tech University Foundation is to "promote the welfare and future development of Arkansas Tech University..." In fulfilling that mission, the Foundation receives private gifts made through various giving programs and then administers those funds to benefit the students and departments of Arkansas Tech University.
Through the Foundation there exist over 250 scholarship accounts set up by private donors. Gifts from alumni and friends have enabled students to study abroad and compete in several national-level competitions. On a departmental level, private gifts have been used to purchase a grand piano for the Music Department, upgrade science labs and obtain reference materials, art supplies, sheet music, computers and software, and so much more.
The Office of Advancement is responsible for coordinating these giving efforts. For more information contact Michael Hutchison, Vice President for Advancement, at 479-968-0400.
