Start a Scholarship: Change Lives Forever

Helping local students achieve their dreams

TTCF donors have awarded over $1 million in scholarships, and changed the lives of hundreds.

Tuition, book prices, and living costs burden are expensive! Scholarships allow them to focus on their studies. They help them start adulthood on the right foot. They are sometimes what encourages a student to say “yes” to college or vocational school.

What to Expect When Opening a Scholarship Fund at TTCF

Scholarships are unique to each donor who opens them

  • Establish scholarships to honor a loved one; name it for yourself, family, or business
  • Design the criteria: merit, need, intended area of focus
  • Make an impact on recipients, who, in turn, are very likely to pass it forward.
  • Invest now or plan a gift from your estate.
  • Know TTCF’s volunteer scholarship committee and staff will impartially select recipient(s), or you may provide guidance.
  • Donors may choose to meet the recipients and build personal relationships with them.

"As a first-generation, low-income student, all of the odds were against me. I am eternally grateful for how TTCF and your donors have helped me."
