Believe in TCC Campaign

Employee Giving

The Believe in TCC campaign kicks off March 28!

Donate to Believe


Tulsa Community College Foundation believes in the mission and vision of TCC.

Because of your generosity, Believe in TCC helps fund TCC Foundation projects that are vital to the success of the College’s students, faculty and staff. State and local funding cannot sustain all of the needs of our College. Your giving provides the additional funds needed to accomplish important programs and development. You play an important role in funding projects such as needs for Fuel Pantry, travel expenses for students and employees to conferences and internships, scholarships for students returning to school and students with disabilities, programs that support parents who are students, and cultural projects that promote diversity, equity, and inclusion. Thank you, TCC employees, for supporting the accomplishments of our students and colleagues.

FAQs

What is the Believe in TCC Campaign?

The Believe in TCC campaign is an annual employee giving campaign that raises funds for TCC Foundation’s projects. TCC relies on a combination of private funding from both employees and external donors to fund the various projects and programs proposed by TCC employees. These projects impact enrichment, academic and financial needs of students and employees.

How are these funds used?

Funds raised through the Believe in TCC Campaign contribute to projects that enhance various needs of students, faculty and staff throughout TCC.

Believe in TCC 2022 donations will support one of three donor designation options.

  • Foundation Funded Projects – by designating your gift to Foundation Funded Projects you support staff and faculty projects that fit into TCC’s strategic plan and solve equity and achievement gaps.
  • Scholarships – by designation your gift to scholarships you give the gift of education and help remove financial barriers for students.

Why does TCC’s Foundation need to raise funds?

State and local funding allocated to TCC is not always enough to support our strategic goals. With private funding, such as your contributions from the Believe in TCC Campaign, the TCC Foundation is able to support important initiatives that will further enhance the experience and achievements of TCC students and employees.

I already give a lot of time and effort to TCC, why should I donate money on top of that?

We truly appreciate your hard work and dedication to TCC. State and local funding allocated to TCC is not always enough to support our projects through TCC. We use the funds for important projects proposed by your colleagues. With your support and funding from external private donors, the TCC Foundation is able to fund the majority of projects that you propose. Your gifts to TCC show non-college donors that you believe in what we do at TCC and support the College’s work with your own charitable giving. Every gift counts. Thank you for Believing in TCC!

How much should I give?

You can impact students or colleagues with a gift of any size. Please make a gift that is meaningful to you. Consider breaking down your donation through payroll deduction.

How do I make a donation?

You can make your pledge and/or donation online, by credit card, PayPal, or Venmo, or by payroll deduction.

You can also complete a Believe in TCC Donation Pledge Card and return it to the TCC Foundation. You can make a one-time gift and enclose a check with your pledge card or you can arrange for a payroll deduction. Deductions will begin July 1, 2022, and will run through June 30, 2023.

Is my gift tax-deductible?

Donations made through this website are tax-deductible. Paid participation in some Believe in TCC games, activities, and events may not be tax-deductible.

When is TCC’s Fiscal Year?

Tulsa Community College’s fiscal year runs July 1 through June 30.
