First Coast Technical College (FCTC) is proud of the work the First Coast Technical College Education Foundation. They offer a full range of charitable gifting opportunities to local organizations, business partners, alumni, and friends to help students succeed. The College Advancement office can help you explore a host of gift options that will allow you to make a difference to present and future generations.

In 2012, plans began for the launch of the First Coast Technical College Education Foundation. The mission of the Foundation is to provide resources to First Coast Technical College (FCTC) students in their pursuit of excellence. To accomplish its mission, the Foundation seeks to attract private funds, grants and resources which will complement, enhance and enrich FCTC programs and provide opportunities for students.

The Foundation provides scholarships and assistance to students in need to complete their career pathway and better prepare FCTC students for the workforce. Success depends on partnerships in our community.

Many opportunities are available for individuals, organizations and businesses interested in helping us plan for future students. These include:

  • Donating to the Foundation so that they can continue to provide scholarships and assist students in need;
  • Assisting the Foundation in building pioneering  and responsive relationships  with local businesses and industry;
  • Providing your time and talent to our Foundation Board of Directors’ committees and initiatives.
