TENNESSEE GAS ASSOCIATION
Founded in 1997, the Tennessee Gas Association Scholarship Program was established by the Tennessee Gas Association (TGA) to provide financial assistance to the children of employees who are TGA members seeking higher education and residing in the State of Tennessee. The TGA Board created the Tennessee Gas Association Scholarship Foundation and, in 2012, the Foundation was granted 501(c)3 status under the Internal Revenue Code making gifts tax-deductible.
The mission of the Tennessee Gas Association (TGA) Scholarship Foundation is to provide financial assistance to the children of employees who are TGA members, seeking higher education and reside in the State of Tennessee.
The vision of the Tennessee Gas Association Scholarship Foundation is to improve the opportunities to secure a quality higher education for qualified children of TGA member employees through dynamic fundraising efforts.
