TCC Foundation

TCC Foundation Logo

Founded in 1970, Tulsa Community College Foundation was established to support the mission and vision of Tulsa Community College. Our goal is to support TCC students, faculty and staff by providing scholarships and resources for program excellence. 

TCC is a premier community college in part because of the support of the TCC Foundation.  Currently, TCC ranks second in the nation in granting associate degrees to Native Americans, and ranks among the top 25 of 1150 two-year institutions nationally in the number of degrees granted.  TCC serves as the entry point to higher education for students from 44 school districts as well as serving the various educational needs of other citizens and businesses in the greater Tulsa area. The College offers more than 200 degrees and certificates designed to transfer to four-year institutions. In 2009, TCC had the largest first-time freshman class in the state, had 19,000 students attend in the fall and is expected to see more than 35,000 over the course of the year.
