TCC Foundation Mission
The Tulsa Community College Foundation provides support to Tulsa Community College and its mission by developing key relationships and financial resources.
The TCC Foundation was established in 1970 to support the vision of Tulsa Community College - to offer greater access to quality higher education, and to support TCC students, faculty and staff by providing scholarships and resources for program excellence. Through generous donations, we have:
- Raised more than $1.3 million in contributions for the successful Health Sciences and Biotechnology Learning Center which trains allied health employees including nurses, dental hygienists and radiology technicians as well as students in biotechnology roles and university transfer programs. Additionally, the Foundation provides tens of thousands of dollars in nursing and biotechnology scholarships.
- Opened the TCC Education Outreach Center designed to guide first-generation college students through the college process as well as offering bilingual and technology courses, student advisement and enrollment services.
- Participated in bringing forth the Thomas K. McKeon Center for Creativity; a central hub for education, innovation, creativity and technology in downtown Tulsa featuring event, classroom and student space.
