The Tyler Junior College Foundation was incorporated in 1965 as a separate 501 (c) (3) support organization for Tyler Junior College. Its mission is to enhance the overall reputation of TJC, to provide external resources to fund College priorities, and to create opportunities for the college to build partnerships with alumni, friends, donors, corporations and foundations. Like many other publicly supported institutions in Texas, the margin of excellence in our activities is dependent upon endowment gifts. Endowment resources help us to retain the best faculty, to attract the most talented students and to provide the most responsive programming.
