Support Newspaper In Education Programs at Tennessee Newspapers
The Tennessee Press
Association Foundation (TPAF) gives Newspaper In Education donors and
potential donors a choice in making contributions to fund classroom newspapers
for schools serviced by TPA-member newspapers.
Donors have the option of sending their gift to the Tennessee Press Association
Foundation or sending their checks directly to a specific newspaper. Using
the Foundation as the recipient of gifts may allow individuals, corporations
and foundations to deduct their donations as a charitable contribution.
Here's how the program works:
1. The donor must complete the contributor's form PDF
file containing all information about the donation, including the
newspaper NIE program(s) designated to receive the donation and send the
form and donation to TPAF.
2. The Tennessee Press Association Foundation will send a check for the
full amount to the designated newspaper’s NIE program.
3. The Tennessee Press Association Foundation will confirm receipt of
donations. Both donors and designated newspaper NIE programs will receive
confirmations from the Foundation.
