Established in 1975, the Trident Technical College Foundation advocates and raises funds for the college to support the region's economy. The foundation operates independently of the college as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. The foundation is governed by the TTC Foundation Board of Trustees.
The TTC Foundation provides funding for the following programs:

Your gift through Campus Campaign is an opportunity to make a positive statement in support of giving to Trident Technical College. When we give, we inspire others to support the college.
A gift in any amount is welcome and appreciated, whether it is $5 or $500. Participation is more important than dollars raised. When friends of the college are considering making a contribution, it is impactful for them to see that a large percentage of employees give back.
Please contact Lisa Jeffries at ext. 6630 or email@example.com to find out what you have given in the past.
You may choose to have your donation deducted from your paycheck in monthly increments. The total amount of your donation will be divided by the number of months you specify (1-12) and that amount will be deducted from your paycheck beginning Oct. 31, 2018. Examples – if you contribute $100 over 12 months, your monthly deduction will be $8.33 per month for 12 months. If you contribute $50 over 1 month, $50 will be deducted for one month.
You also have the option of continuing your deductions indefinitely (or until you tell us to stop by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org). Then you won't have to fill out a new form every year!

Any funds above what is needed for operating expenses can also be used for any of the college's most pressing needs. For example, funds are often transferred from the Trident Opportunity Fund to the Student Emergency Fund if needed. Typical expenses that fall under this category are:
