The Orangeburg-Calhoun Technical College Foundation was established in1977. It is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization totally separate from the Orangeburg-Calhoun Technical College. The purpose of the Foundation is to further the educational aims of the College and its students and employees. A board of directors governs the Foundation.
Our Foundation raises financial support in the community to assist the College through capital campaigns, annual fund drives, and special events. The last capital campaign supplied funds for building construction, renovations, and furnishings.
Annual fund donations provide monies to award scholarships to assist students with tuition, books, and supplies. Annual gifts also financially assist with professional development for faculty and staff, alumni functions, mini grants, and other special projects initiated by faculty and staff. Endowed scholarships enable a number of students to complete their degrees. Money is also raised through memorials and honorarium gifts.
Foundation special events include a Spring Gardening Brunch held in May and a fall fundraiser, An Evening of Fine Wines and Foods.
Contributions to the Foundation are tax-deductible and may be received as gifts of cash, real or personal property, securities, bequests, or by naming the Foundation as beneficiary of insurance policies or trusts. Gifts may be designated or unrestricted and may be given one time or continuing over time.
