Pay it forward.

If you’ve ever received help to achieve your dreams, you know how much it means when someone believes in you. And how great it feels to give someone else a hand up.

For many Nashville State students, going to college to earn a degree or gain credentials to launch a new career or advance in their current field is exciting but daunting. Even with financial aid through Pell Grants, Tennessee Promise, or other sources, a significant number of our students still face funding challenges that make enrolling difficult. That’s where you can help.

Your contribution can change lives—the life of a student and your own. Help them get into Nashville State so they can reach their goals. And know that someday they will pay it forward to others.
