Our Mission

2019 commencement

Tompkins Cortland Community College Foundation's mission is to serve our community by meeting educational needs, creating an environment for student success, and preparing our students and ourselves for citizenship in a global society.  

We make it our goal to secure resources to enhance the learning opportunities for students of the College. That means, quite simply, every dollar matters.

Some of our students are the first in their families to go to college. Some of them take time from their families and jobs. Some of them have lost their careers to change. But they have all made the choice to invent a new future for themselves.

It takes courage to invent.
It takes resources to succeed.

That is where you come in.
