John Tyler Community College Foundation
Your Support Changes Lives
Your support of the John Tyler Community College Foundation helps open doors to life-changing opportunities for Tyler students.
Our mission is to partner with our community to provide financial resources that aid students, support academic programs and facilities, and fund student support services.
As a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, we rely on charitable contributions from donors to achieve our mission. Thank you for your support!
Your Support Matters
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 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.
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.

Spring Semester to Begin Remotely
Due to the current spread of COVID-19 in our area, the college’s spring semester classes will begin remotely. Through January 29, classes scheduled to meet on-campus will be held through Zoom. The college’s student services offices will also continue to offer remote services on the weekdays during this timeframe. Very limited staff will be on campus, and students are encouraged to access services remotely. Students needing assistance may contact the Help Hub. Learn more.
