Tarrant County College student Isabel Arroyo hopes eventually to earn aerospace and mechanical engineering degrees. A scholarship award from the TCC Foundation is helping to make that possible.
“Receiving the scholarship means I will be able to continue my education without having to worry about not being able to attend some of my classes,” the third-semester student said. “It also demonstrates that receiving a scholarship is possible and encouraged me more to stay on this path.”
Arroyo is among 519 students whose scholarship awards were recently announced by the Foundation. An additional 257 student received grants from the Student Emergency Fund.
“At its core, the Tarrant County Foundation is about building relationships,” said Acting Chancellor Elva LeBlanc. “In addition to raising philanthropic funds to support student financial aid and programs, our foundation staff help build connections to the community through industry partners and civic groups. The TCC Foundation Board Members are dedicated community volunteers and advocates for our students.”
The Foundation is a separately incorporated 501(c)(3) organization raising, managing and providing philanthropic support for the students and critical needs of TCC, as identified through the College’s strategic planning process.
Contributions to Foundation may be made through outright gifts of cash, stocks, securities, or major gifts through pledges payable over several years, corporate matching gifts, bequests, trusts, automatic bank withdrawal or TCC payroll deductions. Gifts are tax deductible as a charitable contribution to the maximum amount allowed by law. Tax ID # 75-2277475.
Next up for the Foundation is the TCC Employees Care campaign Oct. 1-31.
