About the TCL Foundation
The Technical College of the Lowcountry Foundation is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization constituted to solely serve the Technical College of the Lowcountry. The Foundation’s federal taxpayer identification number is 57-0767384.
How the College Is Funded
The Technical College of the Lowcountry is a state-assisted, not state-supported community college. The College receives 18% of its operating budget from the State of South Carolina. The unmet balance comes from the tuition and fees charged to students. Affordable tuition is fundamental to the mission of community colleges. TCL sets tuition and fees to cover the real unmet cost of instruction. There is no additional revenue collected to enlarge programs or for new programs. Like community colleges nationally, TCL relies on the communities we serve for the support to sustain and grow academic programs, student support services and more.
