It's Time To Join TCNAA
People ~ Pride ~ Privilege
People are the driving force of Tougaloo College. As a member of the Tougaloo College National Alumni Association, your ideas and input can play a dominant role in the growth and development of your Alma Mater.
Pride in Tougaloo College can inspire Alumni to stay connected to TC through the Alumni Association.
Privilege of Alumni Association Membership can remind alumni that they are one of the College's greatest assets, and that they are appreciated. It also provides the privilege to vote on issues and programs relative to TCNAA.
Timing Is Everything
I gave at the office...I think?
Alumni often wonder why they are asked to pay Alumni Association dues despite having contributed to the Tougaloo College fund raising campaign. While your contributions are vitally important to Tougaloo College, your TCNAA dues help support those programs sponsored by TCNAA and the college (they enhance each other ).
Alumni Association membership dues go directly to support the programs described below [in the membership application brochure]. These programs are designed to serve alumni by keeping them in touch with Tougaloo College and to serve the College by representing the more than 5000 alumni who have a stake in the success of our Alma Mater. Our hope is that you will choose to be a dues-paying member of the Alumni Association and that you will also provide financial support through the College's fund-raising appeals. Don't miss our opportunity to be a part of this winning combination.

Periodically the Tougaloo Alumni Bulletin brings Tougaloo College to your doorstep. Alive with the latest happenings on campus and feature articles of alumni throughout the world, TAB helps alumni to maintain their Tougaloo College connection.
