Join UT Knoxville’s efforts to address the immediate needs of students experiencing hardship. Your gift to the Basic Needs Emergency Fund provides life-changing assistance to Tennessee students in need due to a crisis or catastrophic event.

Many of our students work hard to put themselves through school, and we are committed to helping meet their needs in uncertain times by covering critical needs such as utilities, minor medical expenses, and basic technology.

The Basic Needs Emergency Fund can give UT students the ability to overcome difficult setbacks and achieve greater academic success.

UT Knoxville faculty and staff can set up a payroll deduction in support of this fund.
