Educational Foundation

As the largest provider of higher education in Hampton Roads, TCC enrolls nearly 40,000 students annually. Serving both students and employers for nearly 50 years, TCC is truly the community’s college. It has grown from one campus into a regional educational and economic force.

As TCC has grown, the challenges of providing the best possible education to our students have grown tremendously. Although TCC is affordable, many students face financial barriers that can prevent them from achieving their educational goals. During our most recent scholarship cycle we received more than 8,000 applications for scholarships.

Paving a Path to a Better Future

The Tidewater Community College Educational Foundation helps to overcome these challenges by using donations to provide funding for scholarships, expand and enhance academic and career training programs and ensure students have access to state of the art facilities and equipment.

Scholarship recipient Jared Selby said “Before receiving a scholarship, I was focused on debt more than school. After I was granted a scholarship, I was able to receive the necessary funds to continue on this journey to further my education. A path has been paved for a broader, brighter and more influential future.”

There are many ways to show your financial support for students like Jared. Contributions can be made through individual gifts, scholarships, endowments, planned giving, and more. Your investment in TCC is an investment in the Hampton Roads community.

From TCC, our students can go anywhere!

Whether they transfer to a four-year university, enter the workforce or move up the corporate ladder, our students’ journeys to stronger futures starts at TCC.

We invite you to be part of their journey. Make a gift to the TCC Educational Foundation today.
