The Taft College Foundation works closely with all departments on campus to enhance and expand programs for our students. Many areas of campus rely on additional contributions for the supplies, equipment, or tools needed for learning. These areas are just a few of the programs with the greatest need. Additional contributions can be made to support many other programs and activities on campus. We appreciate the continual support of Taft College, which allows our students to thrive in the highest possible environment.
Why Give to TCF?
INNOVATION POWERING EDUCATION
As a private, non-profit corporation, a board of directors governs this Foundation. The principal role of the board of directors is to establish policies and provide guidance in achieving its objectives. Board members work closely with the president, foundation director and other campus leaders to increase private support for endowments to enhance the educational and cultural environment of the College and surrounding community.
