Where Education Changes Lives

Since 1967, Tacoma Community College Foundation scholarships have helped students to earn technical certificates or complete two-year associate’s degrees to pursue the remainder of their undergraduate studies at a college or university, advance in their career or succeed in a new career.

Foundation scholarships have impacted the lives of thousands of TCC students, who come from different backgrounds but share one belief – that education can change and improve their lives.

Inspiring Student Success

Our mission is to inspire investment in student success by supporting programs that reduce barriers to education and by funding scholarships that create more equitable access for students of all backgrounds to achieve their dreams.
