The mission of the Trinity Valley Community College Foundation is to support the growth and development of Trinity Valley Community College in whatever ways beneficial to its students, faculty, staff and campus facilities. We fulfill this mission by actively encouraging private gifts from individuals, alumni, businesses, associations and service organizations.

Trinity Valley continues to be a jewel in the crown of higher education in East Texas. Our academic programs are world class. Our offerings in the arts not only educate our students, but also bring dance, music, drama and a general sense of a refined culture to our community. Our sports programs are second to none. As you consider the ongoing needs in the region’s workforce, we hope you will also recognize the outstanding job this institution does in ensuring qualified employees are dispersed annually to ensure our local economy thrives and expands.

The TVCC Foundation continues to build relationships within our community—connecting a desire to make a positive difference in the lives of others through learning and cultural enrichment with giving opportunities at Trinity Valley Community College. For our efforts, TVCC was named Business of the Year by the Athens Chamber of Commerce.  We are proud of the positive economic impact we have on our service area. The Foundation sincerely appreciates the support of its donors who not only impact today's students, but also help ensure that TVCC will be here for generations to come.

During a time of economic uncertainty, the Foundation must assume a major role in meeting the needs of TVCC and its students. The commitment of our donors takes on a greater role of importance than ever before if TVCC is to continue to be a comprehensive college.

When considering your philanthropic support each year, please remember that a gift to the TVCC Foundation will enhance this wonderful institution and each dollar contributed will be managed professionally. A gift to the TVCC Foundation is an investment in the future of our community and our students, who live, work and play in this wonderful part of East Texas.

Thank you for your support!
