The GTCC Foundation supports efforts to ensure educational excellence through fund raising, advocacy, and promoting awareness of GTCC’s positive impact on the community.
The GTCC Foundation will be a leader among community college foundations, universally recognized as an innovative and major force in support of development and advancement; students, faculty, and staff; and programs required to deliver educational excellence.
The GTCC Foundation was established in 1966 by the Guilford Technical Community College Board of Trustees to facilitate fundraising and promote awareness of the college. The growth and success of the Foundation over the last half century is perhaps one of the college’s most remarkable stories. Today, the GTCC Foundation oversees more than 200 gift funds that provide critical financial support each year for scholarships, equipment, athletics, professional development, student travel, and more.
The Foundation is governed by a volunteer board of directors made up of representatives from the college’s board of trustees and people from the community. The work of the board is accomplished through a number of standing and special committees.
The GTCC Foundation is confirmed by the Internal Revenue Service as a tax-exempt organization under IRS Code, Section 501(c)(3), federal tax identification number 56-6085391. Gifts to the GTCC Foundation are carefully invested for growth and return.
