Giving Tree of Opportunity

What better way to honor or memorialize someone than through a visual piece of art that is permanently displayed for the public to view? The Tree of Opportunity & Excellence is a brass sculpture that is prominently displayed in the front lobby of the Orval Pirtle Administration Building on the Athens campus. The tree serves as a visual tribute to those who have given their financial support to the Trinity Valley Community College Foundation.

Ways to be part of the cardinal family tree:

  • An engraved leaf on the tree represents a $1,000.00 to $9,999.00 donation.
  • A small engraved stone below the tree represents a contribution to the Foundation of $10,000.00 to $24,999.00.
  • A large engraved strong represents support of $25,000.00 or more.


Each gift to the Foundation serves in perpetual honor to those united in our mission of offering every opportunity for future students who seek a college education.

When a donor reaches the next level of contribution, they will receive a personalized plaque from the Foundation to honor their contribution level. Give online Now or call us 903-670-2620.
