“Because of your support and the welcoming atmosphere TCC provides, students like me can pursue our dreams - my dream is to become a E.R. nurse, and in my days off volunteer at animal shelters.”

- Becca Mclaughlin

The Tulsa Community College Foundation believes in the mission and vision of our College. Each day we work diligently to provide the support to allow our students, faculty and staff to shine. You might ask why private giving matters for a public institution, and especially why we would look to our own colleagues as a source for private gifts. Quite simply, private giving matters because state and local funding cannot sustain all that we do. Together, we not only impact student success, but the success of our faculty and staff. Your support of the TCC Foundation allows us to provide scholarships, academic enrichment activities, and numerous other initiatives that make TCC a special place to study and work. The TCC Foundation is beginning a multiyear fundraising campaign to lend even more support to our College, and community donors will look to our participation in the Believe in TCC Campaign to guide their decisions on how they should support TCC. It is more important than ever that we show our community partners that we are dedicated to ensuring continued excellence at TCC. Philanthropy spreads from the inside out. Your support sends a compelling message to our private donors that you believe TCC is a worthy investment. Thank you for encouraging others to pledge their support to our great institution.

"I participate in the “Believe in TCC” campaign as a proud staff member, adjunct faculty member, former student, parent of TCC students, and spouse of a former student and current adjunct faculty member. A large part of my life is, and has been, dedicated to the College and her many constituents. This a great place to be and I am delighted to support our mission in every way that I can."
– George Black, Director of Academic & Campus Services, Metro Campus

Kaye Ellis

"I have donated to the TCC Foundation through the Believe in TCC campaign. I do believe in Tulsa Community College. My relationship with the college started through a non-credit community class, followed by an associate degree from Tulsa Junior College. I later returned taking advantage of the career exploration offered to alumni before returning to college to further my education, and I continue to take classes as a lifelong learner. I am proud to be an employee of Tulsa Community College and know what happens at TCC changes lives. Donating to the Foundation so they can continue to support scholarships, student trips and recognitions, is one way I can give back and make a difference in the lives of future students and employees."
– Kaye Ellis, Civil Rights Compliance Administrator, Office of Diversity and Inclusion

Josh Parish

"The TCC Foundation’s support of the Tulsa Review literary journal has been instrumental in giving TCC students a place to publish their work… I have given to the Believe in TCC campaign in the past. I knew how important this funding was to our project, and I wanted other TCC projects to have a chance at success with the Foundation’s funding, too."
– Josh Parish, Assistant Professor of English, Managing Editor of the Tulsa Review.
