Donate to Support Gifted Students and Teachers

Donate Here

TAG invites you to make a donation to support TAG teachers and students. We have several areas you can donate to, including sponsoring a yearly award, teacher classroom grants, and student summer scholarships. See descriptions below for more details:


TAG Teacher Mini-Grants are intended to fund TAG teachers’ innovative projects that are designed or differentiated to meet the needs of gifted students. Students should be engaged in creative or critical thinking and/or problem solving activities that deepen their understanding and mastery of challenging subject matter and further develop their habits of inquiry, self-directed learning, and reflection. Mini-grant funds may be used for non-consumable resource materials, supplies, equipment, or software. Funds may not be used to support after-school, weekend, summer, or home school programs or to pay stipends or salaries.

TAG is pleased to offer scholarships to Tennessee’s gifted students for educational programs that provide enrichment, acceleration, or independent study. TAG will not award scholarships for the full amount of the program. The TAG scholarship provides up to 85% of the total program fee with a maximum award of $200.00 per scholarship recipient. (Number of scholarships depended upon donations and funding)
