In 2011-2012, the GTCC Foundation invested over $910,000 in donations and grants in support of the college.

The purpose of the Foundation is to raise financial resources beyond those provided by the state and county that enable the College to more fully carry out its mission.

Gifts to the Foundation provide scholarships to students and support faculty and staff development, innovation, and key initiatives.

Given the changing nature of governmental funding, the GTCC Foundation will play an even more important role in meeting the mission of the college going forward

Our students are some of the brightest and most talented in nation. The GTCC Foundation helps highlight those talents through funding events such as Student Presentation Day, covering traveling expenses for students and advisors to attend competitions such as the Nationals Skills USA Conference, and providing memberships into professional organizations like the National Intercollegiate Flying Association.
