THE MATHER LEGACY SOCIETY. TCL’s legacy of education began in 1868 as The Mather School, which provided education for the daughters of former slaves. As a member of the Mather Legacy Society, you are helping to ensure that this original legacy is carried well into the future. Membership in the Mather Legacy Society is offered to donors who let us know by written documentation that they have included TCL in their estate plans or as a beneficiary of another type of planned gift, regardless of the amount. Mather Legacy Membership is also offered to donors who make a permanent gift of an endowment; a gift that gives back to TCL forever.

TCL WE GIVE Campaign

May 26-June 26, 2015
For 18 years I have watched the work of the TCL Foundation and the generosity of our staff, faculty and TCL supporters.  Many of our students would not have finished their education and be able to reach their dreams without the help of the TCL Foundation.
Our WE GIVE Campaign goal is not a dollar amount.  Our WE GIVE Campaign goal is 100% participation.  Every gift counts.  No amount is too small.  It’s about coming together as the team we are to support programs, the students, the campus, the college we are passionate about.  I ask you to please consider initiating a payroll deduction, increasing an existing deduction, or making a onetime gift with a personal check or credit card.  You choose where to direct your support.
-Melanie Gallion, WE GIVE, Staff Captain
