TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (October 3, 2013) – Tallahassee Community College believes in leadership through demonstration. That’s why, every year, the TCC Foundation begins its fundraising efforts with the employee-focused Campaign for TCC—an opportunity for TCC faculty and staff to support scholarships and initiatives at the College through donations. This year the Campaign for TCC is trying something new, a grand finale of special fundraising events, October 7 – 11, giving the College’s various departments a chance to support causes related to their particular areas.
“Over the last two years, the Campaign for TCC has raised more than $100,000 through employee donations,” said Ranie Thompson, development officer for the TCC Foundation. “But our emphasis isn’t on reaching a monetary goal—it’s on encouraging wide-spread participation among faculty and staff. The week’s line-up of employee-organized events is a fun way for more people to get involved and a chance for the TCC community to really take ownership of the campaign.”
