Welcome to the Valley family. Here at the Valley, students will always be the primary focus of Trinity Valley Community College, and they are TVCC's greatest asset. It is our goal to continue to improve services to our students and to offer opportunities for every student who seeks a college education through your sacrificial gifts. To fulfill this goal of serving all of our students, TVCC Foundation was established in 1974.
Creating Opportunities, Building Lives
Endowments and unrestricted gifts have provided the solid financial foundation needed to grow our college across East Texas. When an endowed fund is created, the original fund, or corpus, can never be used. Only the earnings are expended. This way, the fund can benefit students and faculty in perpetuity for generations to come.
Over the last 45 years the TVCC Foundation has awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars to countless students who might not otherwise have been able to attend college. Together, we are making a difference in the lives of students and in the communities we serve.
Invest in TVCC
Your gift to the TVCC Foundation is an investment in our students, our faculty and their potential. By supporting TVCC, you help us secure educational opportunities for future generation of students and meet the enormous challenges we face as a society. Together, we will sustain an enduring tradition of scholarship, service and Cardinal pride.
At TVCC, we are not afraid to take risks, to test bold hypotheses or to rethink traditional approaches to problems. We are innovators of new technologies and medical procedures. We dare to ask new questions and to celebrate the synergy and solutions that result when people from seemingly unrelated disciplines join together for a common cause. With additional private support, we will be able to bring a wider spectrum of opportunities to TVCC — and consequently offer more solutions to those we serve locally and around the world.
A Donor Bill of Rights
PHILANTHROPY is based on voluntary action for the common good. It is a tradition of giving and sharing that is primary to the quality of life. To ensure that philanthropy merits the respect and trust of the general public, and that donors and prospective donors can have full confidence in the not-for-profit organizations and causes they are asked to support, we declare that all donors have these rights:

To be informed of the identity of those serving on the organization’s governing board, and to expect the board to exercise prudent judgment in its stewardship responsibilities.
To have access to the organization’s most recent financial statements.
To be assured their gifts will be used for the purposes for which they were given.
To receive appropriate acknowledgement and recognition.
To be assured that information about their donations is handled with respect and with confidentiality to the extent provided by law.
To expect that all relationships with individuals representing organizations of interest to the donor will be professional in nature.
To be informed whether those seeking donations are volunteers, employees of the organization or hired solicitors.
To have the opportunity for their names to be deleted from mailing lists that an organization may intend to share.
To feel free to ask questions when making a donation and to receive prompt, truthful and forthright answers.
