Welcome to Planned Giving

The University of Tennessee (UT) Institute for Public Service (IPS) strategic plan is driving continuous improvement in our organization. Stakeholders, customers, friends, supporters, and staff from across the state of Tennessee have identified a number of service improvements and expansions necessary for IPS to meet both present and future needs.

Some of the more urgent needs include the need for faster and expanded response, sustainable funding for operations, and better facilities in each region of the state. Funding derived from federal, state, and local sources provides a strong financial foundation for the service of IPS, yet stakeholders supporting the strategic plan recognized that IPS should do more to expand and protect the services of IPS agencies. This requires IPS to step beyond the old model for funding of services based on appropriations and fees with an increased focus on non-appropriated revenues and fundraising.
