Your Support Matters

For so many people, Tyler is the link between existing and excelling, between getting by and thriving. Your investment in the John Tyler Community College Foundation helps the college deliver high-quality education in a friendly and supportive community that inspires students to achieve more. Whether a Tyler student continues with his or her education at a four-year university or launches a career, the Tyler experience has prepared that student for success. Your gift makes that possible.

Funding Priorities

Annual Fund

Gifts to Tyler’s Greatest Need (Annual Fund) provide critical resources to meet the changing needs of Tyler students and the college. From grants that support faculty initiatives to student emergency funds, your gift ensures the John Tyler Community College Foundation is able to quickly pivot to address needs as they arise. Thanks to annual fund donors, the Foundation was able to help more than 225 students persist in their education during  COVID-19 by helping with expenses like housing, utilities and food.

College & Student Programs

The John Tyler Community College Foundation provides funding for a number of college and student programs that ensure student success. Initiatives include facility improvements and equipment needs for academic programs, faculty innovation projects, emergency funding for students, tutoring and academic support services, and so much more. 

Scholarships

Scholarships are a cornerstone of the John Tyler Community College Foundation and provide a pathway for students to access high-quality, affordable education at Tyler. Annual and endowed scholarships are awarded based on a variety of criteria and are both need- and merit-based.

  • Annual scholarships can be established with an initial commitment of $2,500 which can be fulfilled over two years.
  • Endowed scholarships can be established with a commitment of $30,000 which can be fulfilled over five years. Additional gifts to endowed scholarships of any amount are welcomed.

Discover how you can make a difference in the lives of our students by establishing a scholarship.

Endowment Gifts

Gifts to our General Endowment and the William H. Talley III Endowment for Workforce Development provide student funding in perpetuity. We gratefully accept gifts of any amount to these funds.


As of July 1, 2021, the Foundation will apply a one-time 4 percent administrative fee to all restricted gifts with the exception of gifts to endowed funds.

When I received the scholarship, it was a huge burden lifted off of me and my family, knowing that I could pursue my education and not have to put anything else on the back burner.
