Gift A Future

Gift a Future Logo, blue and gold graduation cap with the words Gift a Future underneath itBecause of you, we’ve got stories to tell – stories of scholarships, generosity, partnership, and growth.  

More than 1,000 students a year receive a scholarship through the TCC Foundation. These scholarships have been established by generous TCC Foundation donors. 

The Gift A Future Campaign continues its story by setting a goal to support more students than ever. The Tallahassee Community College Foundation depends on the support of alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and community friends to continue its mission to support TCC by strengthening connections to the community, promoting excellence in teaching, and expanding student success in a global economy. 

We will match your tax-deductible gift, at any size, $1 for $1, up to $20,000! Your story of investing in student success will help us continue providing our students with the highest quality of education.

Did you know that 60% of TCC students need some financial aid?

Did you know that 70% of TCC students work part-time to help support their education?

Did you know that returning students are not eligible for scholarships such as Bright Futures, available only to first-time students?

Meet Joseph

Joseph Odiege Headshot"I grew up in North Miami, Florida, and I originally intended to attend TCC as a gateway to FAMU. Once I got to Tallahassee and started researching nursing schools, I realized that TCC is not only the best but the most affordable.

College, especially the nursing program, is really time-consuming. I was trying to go to school while working three jobs to support myself. I recently was awarded the Florida Blue Scholarship and it has absolutely changed my life. Now, I can concentrate on my classes without having to juggle work schedules. I am so thankful to the TCC Foundation donors who make scholarships like mine possible."
