The successful completion of Campaign for Tennessee, a billion dollar fund-raising effort, was marked on April 20, 2012, by a “Thank-a-Giver” celebration. Oversized orange and white gift tags—some as much as 10 feet tall—appeared throughout campus—including ones on 14 newly constructed or renovated buildings. From the kickoff of the campaign in 2005 through its wrap-up in December 2011, more than $1.3 billion was raised for the UT system, $860 million of it for the students, faculty, programs, and facilities at UT Knoxville.
