What is the TCC Foundation?
The foundation is a separate, not-for-profit, IRS approved 501(c)(3) organization that provides philanthropic support for the students and critical needs of Tarrant County College, as identified through the College District’s strategic planning process.
May I designate my gift as I wish?
Yes. You can tell us how to utilize your donation by making a restricted gift.
What is the difference between a restricted gift and an unrestricted gift?
If you make a restricted gift, also known as a designated gift, you can direct your contribution to a specific scholarship, academic program, or any other special need. If you make an unrestricted gift – one with no restrictions on its use – you give the Foundation the ability to apply funds where students or programs need them most, including taking advantage of unexpected opportunities and meeting unforeseen challenges.
Can I make a gift in honor or memory of someone?
Yes. You can give in a person’s name as a tribute to a friend, colleague, mentor, family member, or anyone else.
How can I double or even triple my contribution?
Contact the human resource office at your company to see if it offers a matching funds program. More than 1,200 corporations have programs that match employees’ gifts to educational institutions.

What is a planned gift?
A planned gift is a charitable gift arrangement that is purposefully integrated into the donor's overall financial, tax and estate plans. More information can be found on our site about ways to give.
What is an outright gift?
An outright gift is an immediate, direct contribution, usually consisting of cash, real estate, or securities.
Are there any advantages to making an outright gift?
Yes! When you make an outright gift of cash, property, securities, or other assets to the TCC Foundation:
- You provide instant assistance to students and programs, plus gain an immediate tax deduction.
- It’s an easy, efficient way to support a cause in which you believe.
- The tax deduction can reduce the net cost of your gift, possibly allowing you to contribute more than you initially planned.
- There are no complex financial documents to complete.
- You get the satisfaction of offering direct financial help that furthers the college’s mission of reaching out to students and providing affordable, accessible learning opportunities.
