Next Up - A Campaign for Tyler

Tyler changes lives. You make it possible.

For so many people, Tyler is the link between existing and excelling, between getting by and thriving. Tyler opens doors to life-changing opportunities and allows students to define their own success – whether that is excelling at a four-year university or thriving in a sought-after career.

We can’t do it alone. Invest in Next Up: A Campaign for Tyler and help us raise $3 million to ensure a success story for every student and create a stronger local workforce.

Make your donation today and your impact will be doubled! Our generous supporter Mr. William H. Talley III will match your campaign gift, dollar for dollar, up to $25,000.
