Academic Excellence Requires a Strong Foundation
The CGTC Foundation is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization that supports Central Georgia Technical College and provides the assistance needed to help our students achieve success and fulfill their academic goals. The Foundation supports the mission of the College by:
- awarding student scholarships
- providing textbook loans to students via the Lending Library
- funding campus expansion and growth
- promoting professional development among faculty and staff
- supporting adult education initiatives
- fostering community partnerships
The consolidated Central Georgia Technical College Foundation, a nonprofit, 501(c)3 organization, supports Central Georgia Technical College in its mission to contribute to economic and workforce development in Central Georgia. The Foundation strives to promote community awareness of the benefits offered by the College and to supplement available resources through private funding for capital expansion and improvements, equipment, staff and faculty development, and endowments. The CGTC Foundation serves students, educational initiatives, and community partnerships in Baldwin, Bibb, Crawford, Dooly, Houston, Jones, Monroe, Peach, Pulaski, Putnam, and Twiggs Counties.
The CGTC Foundation was reinvigorated in 2014 when the Board of Trustees voted to consolidate the Central Georgia Technical College Foundation (established in 1991) and the Middle Georgia Technical College Foundation (established in 1988) to appropriately reflect the mission of the new Central Georgia Technical College.
The CGTC Foundation is governed by a local board of trustees who solicit gifts, bequests of property, and funds designated to support educational purposes at the College. The Board of Trustees cultivates and coordinates cash, grants and other funding, as well as property from industry, business, foundations and friends of CGTC.
The mission of the Central Georgia Technical College Foundation is to provide financial support for the advancement of Central Georgia Technical College. To accomplish this mission, the Foundation solicits donations and grants to provide student scholarships, innovative facilities and equipment, faculty and staff development, and other needs beyond the scope of the Institution’s budget.
