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.
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.
The TCL Foundation accepts contributions on behalf of the Technical College of the Lowcountry in a variety of ways including cash, check, credit card, securities, bequests and planned gifts.
For gifts of stocks, bonds and mutual funds, notify the broker or bank that you intend to electronically transfer the funds to the college. Prior to the transfer, alert the college by calling 843-525-8214 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
