Thanks to generous alumni, TFAS will be able to give more scholarships to deserving leaders in 2021. On Giving Tuesday 2020, countless TFAS alumni kicked off our end of year Alumni Give Back campaign to support future students and share the gift of a TFAS education.
In one day, TFAS saw the most-ever gifts from alumni, with support coming from graduates of TFAS programs from the 1970s all the way to 2020.
We rely on the products put out by TFAS to provide us with fact-based defenses of free markets, personal liberty, and limited government that can inform our own thinking and help us to champion those ideas on campus and in our future careers.” – Luke Bunting, Law ’20
One of these alumni was Michael Baker ’10, PPF ’16, who says it’s important to give back because TFAS teaches young leaders how to think about the foundations of democracy and America’s first principles.
“TFAS teaches freedom and economics, which is so lacking in our world,” he said. “Freedom is especially vanishing from the conversation with crazy governmental rules and decrees.”
Although only completing a TFAS program a few months ago, Luke Bunting, Law ’20, agrees and knows the importance of giving back. Bunting completed the TFAS Summer Law Fellowship program virtually in August and says TFAS’s work to educate and equip the next generation of leaders with the knowledge they need to promote the pillars of democracy is invaluable.
“In this environment, the work that TFAS does to educate young people has become more important than ever,” Bunting said. “We rely on the products put out by TFAS to provide us with fact-based defenses of free markets, personal liberty, and limited government that can inform our own thinking and help us to champion those ideas on campus and in our future careers.”
To inspire even more alumni gifts, two anonymous alumni stepped up to create a matching gift fund. All gifts made by TFAS alumni before the end of the year will be matched, dollar for dollar (up to $15,000) until Dec. 31.
Thanks to the outpouring of support by TFAS alumni we achieved more than 90 percent of our goal in two weeks and now only $1,000 in matching funds remains. TFAS is encouraging all alumni to double their impact to help us reach this goal.
Alumni gifts will:
- Make TFAS stronger than ever, so we can continue to support alumni through networking, mentorship and career opportunities.
- Ensure alumni affiliation with TFAS helps graduates stand out throughout their career.
- Provide valuable resources to TFAS professors and educators, making sure they have what they need to teach incoming students to the best of their ability.
- Give young leaders the opportunity to forge life-long relationships with fellow students, professors, mentors and guest speakers.
- Give future students the gift of a TFAS education, both inside and outside the classroom.
