Grateful Vol Week

The University of Tennessee’s third annual Grateful Vol Day (GVD) will celebrate the generosity of UT Knoxville donors by providing an opportunity for students to say thank you. Unlike past years, GVD this year will be a digital experience. Students who submit a personal thank you video will have a chance to win prizes.

There will be two parts we hope you will help us promote: Grateful Vol Week (September 7–11): Student Focused. A weeklong collection of personal thank you videos from UT students.

Grateful Vol Day (September 16): Day of gratitude as we send the collected thank you videos to UT Knoxville donors.

Grateful Vol Day serves to create a culture of gratitude by educating students about the importance of philanthropy and showing appreciation to the university’s generous donors. Signs will be placed around campus that illustrate the impact of donor support

Dial-In Information
