Where Your Dollars Go
Your support of the Forsyth Tech Foundation will advance the College’s mission: providing students with flexible educational pathways to a competitive workforce for the community and global economy.
With input from College leaders, the Forsyth Tech Foundation has established three fund-raising priorities:
- Student scholarships. Most Forsyth Tech students work at least part time, and many are single parents. Others are out of work or stuck in low-skilled, low-paying jobs. While tuition at Forsyth Tech is a bargain compared with four-year colleges and universities, it is beyond reach for many of our students. Your support of scholarships will make a big difference in our students’ lives.
- Technology. From machines that simulate cancer-radiation treatment to 3D printers that manufacture parts from thin air, technology is advancing faster than the College can keep pace. Students and instructors need access to state-of-the-art instruments and equipment found in the workplace. Your support of technology will give our students more hands-on experience and a leg up when they apply for jobs.
- Professional development. Just as technology is advancing, so is the body of knowledge about how people learn and evidence about effective strategies for instructing them. Our faculty and staff need to keep abreast of what works in education in order to remain at the top of their fields. Your support of professional development opportunities for faculty and staff will enhance their impact on student learners.
