Funding Priorities 

New Start Scholarship for DJJ-Involved Youth

  • There exists a segment of the youth population who, although they have made missteps in their early lives, are at a point in their lives when they have an opportunity to make right choices and have positive and productive lives, if given the right support and motivation
  • The TCC Foundation has created an endowed scholarship to support DJJ-involved youth
  • The first recipient was identified in early 2009
  • You Can Help By:

    • Making a financial contribution to the scholarship endowment

Tallahassee Community College Annual Fund

  • The Annual Fund raises much-needed funds in support of a variety College initiatives
  • Monies raised through Annual Campaign efforts would be allocated to College programs and initiatives in proportion to an allocation decision made by the College’s Executive Team and conveyed to the TCC Foundation before April 1 each year
  • Programs and initiatives included in the Annual Fund may change from year to year, but are expected to include such things as:
    • Enhancing Enrichment Activities such as: 
      • Model United Nations
      • Forensics Team
      • Brain Bowl
      • International field trips and study opportunities
    • Scholarship Support:
      • Non-Credit Programs
      • Gadsden Career Academy
      • Tallahassee Fire Academy

 President's Circle

  • The President’s Circle is one of the principal ways in which the Foundation raises unrestricted funding for the College
  • Individuals who contribute at least $1,000 annually without restriction are inducted into the President’s Circle for the following year
  • Members receive a schedule of benefits including invitations to three exclusive President’s Circle Artist Receptions each year
  • You Can Help By:
    • Becoming a President’s Circle member and attending President’s Circle events throughout the year

Fostering Achievement Fellowship Program

  • There are gaps in the dependency system which create barriers that prevent many young people from entering college:
    • Under certain circumstances, kids who age out of Foster Care may not qualify for a tuition waiver
    • Children in care of other areas of the dependency system may not have the financial resources to attend college
    • An even greater number of children in care do not have the information or the emotional and academic support they need to become college-ready
  • The TCC Foundation created the Fostering Achievement Fellowship to assist young people coming out of the foster care to become college-ready and afford to attend college
  • Program needs include:
    • Funds to provide financial assistance for eligible college-ready children
    • Funds to offset program staff expense and other operational costs
  • You Can Help By:
    • Making a financial contribution to help with program costs

Gadsden County

  • Tallahassee Community College and the TCC Foundation are committed to improving the high school graduation and college-going rates for citizens of Gadsden County
  • We will work with community partners to identify the barriers to student success and then develop and implement a comprehensive program to remove these barriers
  • You Can Help By:
    • Helping to plan for the creation of an endowed fund similar to that held by the TCCF for the Wakulla County Academic Boosters Association
    • Raising funds to help high school students attend the Gadsden Career Academy at the Florida Public Safety Institute

Wakulla County

  • Tallahassee Community College and the TCC Foundation are committed to enhancing opportunities for citizens in Wakulla County to access college degree and workforce training programs
  • In the early 2000’s, the Wakulla County Academic Boosters Association partnered with the TCC Foundation to establish what we believe to be the largest county-generated scholarship endowment in the State.  As of 2008, the value of the endowment exceeded $1,000,000
  • Today, a great number of Wakulla High School graduates attend TCC before moving on to additional post-secondary education at FSU, FAMU or other four year colleges
  • Wakulla High School has an exceptional Medical Academy whose graduates could benefit from the availability of scholarship funds specifically directed toward helping them complete degree programs in health professions occupations
  • Wakulla County is extremely ecologically diverse, and therefore offers unique opportunities for environmentally-based education and training
  • You Can Help By:
    • Giving to help establish a new scholarship to support graduates of Wakulla High’s Medical Academy who wish to attend TCC
    • Making a donation so that an even greater number of Wakulla County students may attend TCC with a Wakulla County Academic Boosters Association scholarship
