Our Fall Fund Drive is a Huge Annual Success Because of YOU, Our Generous Alumni & Community Supporters!
The Scholarship Fund of Alexandria’s Annual Fall Fund Drive kicks off each fall in October and concludes in November, traditionally during our Annual All-Alumni Happy Hour. We reach out to the Alexandria community and our T.C. Williams Alumni using emails, social media, letters and our “Gratitude for Giving” Phone-a-thon when current T.C. Williams students who plan to apply for scholarships take to the phones to thank supporters who give the gift of college to TC students year after year. This year we’ll have a virtual phone-a-thon where students reach out from their mobile phones to thank community members in person for their financial support. AND with the virtual world of 2020 in lieu of an Alumni Happy Hour, we’re working on an Alumni Drive-In Movie event here in Alexandria! Watch for announcements!
Each year the Fund enjoys tremendous support from our local community – last year’s Drive raised over $100,000 that helped provide college scholarships for members of T.C. Williams Class of 2020. 100% of funds collected during the Fall Drive go directly to support scholarships!
Clash of the Titans Competition
Alumni are encouraged to give through a friendly competition called the ‘Clash of the Titans.’ The top donor classes during The Drive last fall was The Class of 1989!! Give now, to help earn Your Class bragging rights!
Watch for announcements about “The Clash” and keep track of how your class is doing on our social media channels!

Why Support Scholarships NOW?
This year, the need for scholarships is truly profound — 60% of Alexandria City Public School students live near the poverty level. These very same students and their families are being hardest hit by COVID and COVID economic impacts.
Each year the vast majority of our scholarships are awarded to Black students in Alexandria. As part of the nationwide movement to support racial equity, SFA recognizes that we can all do better. We are looking for ways to create greater college access and even more scholarships for black students.
Simply put, there has never been a more important time to support college scholarships for Alexandria students in need than Right Now.
