Austin Peay State University alumni, friends give nearly $70,000 to campus community through Govs Give Back


Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – During the Spring 2020 semester, Austin Peay State University (APSU) students, faculty and staff made many adjustments to conduct all classes online as a result of the new coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

In response to this need, the Govs Give Back Fund was created.

This initiative is intended to provide urgent financial assistance for students, faculty and staff who have suffered severe economic, medical or similar hardships during COVID-19 Coronavirus and in other times of crisis.

To date, more than 100 Austin Peay State University alumni and friends have contributed nearly $70,000 to the initiative. That money has covered expenses related to the pandemic, including rent, electric bills, childcare, healthcare and access to technology.

“We are grateful to our community for their support during a time that has been challenging for us and for them as well,” Assistant Vice President for University Advancement Kris Phillips said. “Their selfless giving spirit has helped the members of our Gov family who need it most. We cannot thank them enough for their caring response.”
