Last year, donors like you doubled our scholarship funds from $113,000 to offer $232,500 in scholarships to graduating high school seniors. In 2019, you did it again! TTCF is overjoyed to share that you raised $449,500 to support local young people in their pursuit of higher education through TTCF facilitated scholarships!

2019 highlights include:

  • 92 community scholarships totaled $868,400
  • 145 applicants
  • 119 recipients
  • 36 first-generation college student recipients

TTCF is amazed at how our donors have stepped up to support local students achieve their dreams. It shows that our community values higher education and making it more accessible to more students in the face of rising costs and competition. This year, one anonymous donor shaped a scholarship structure to support first generation college students throughout their entire careers. Read it here.
