Annual Fund



The Annual Fund raises unrestricted dollars to support key college priorities and provides GTCC with the ability to respond to changing needs.  In general, gifts are in the $25 to $1,000 range.

Foundation Funds At Work

Annually, GTCC helps more than 40,000 students gain educational experiences that transform lives. Many students need the scholarship to be able to access higher education and an improved future. For others, Foundation support provides achievement and enrichment through regional and national academic competition, instructional quality initiatives, and expanded learning opportunities.

Academic competitions help students connect classroom skills and knowledge to the real world. Your gift to the Foundation provides supplemental funds so our students can participate. And each year, our students receive acclaim for participating in national and regional academic competitions. In 2014, GTCC students won first place at the National Culinary Knowledge Bowl, and six GTCC students finished in the top 10 in the nation at the SkillsUSA National Leadership Conference.

In addition to providing scholarships and emergency assistance to deserving students, the GTCC Foundation gives faculty extra resources that enhance the quality of instruction and expands campus boundaries through arts and community service programming. Your financial support creates a learning environment that enriches lives and prepares the workforce of the future.

Guilford Technical Community College Foundation provides financial assistance to worthy students seeking their education and provides resources for faculty and staff in areas not covered by state funds. Foundation funds support key college priorities and provide the flexibility to rapidly respond to changing needs.
