minority-owned, women-owned, veteran-owned, and located in historically
underutilized business zones (HUBZone) strengthens TVA’s mission of service
and our efforts to promote prosperity across the Valley.

Finding cures. Saving children.

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood
cancer. Because most of our funding comes from individual supporters, we have the freedom to focus on what
matters most. Every day in hundreds of laboratories, we’re discovering new ways to improve survival and
quality of life for children with cancer. Our discoveries have helped push overall childhood cancer rates from
20% when we opened to 80% today. We won’t stop until no child dies from cancer. Learn more at

Without a Heart,
it’s just a machine.

So in 1971, a little Heart built a different kind of airline—
one that made sure everyone could fly.

Everyone has important places to go.
So we invented low-fares to help them get there.

Here, we think everyone deserves to feel special,
no matter where you sit or how much you fly.

And with all the places we’re going next, we’ll always put you first,
because our love of People is still our most powerful fuel.

Some say we do things differently.

We say, why would we do things any other way?

Without a Heart, it’s just a machine.
