Although Forsyth Tech is a publicly supported community college, there are limitations to the state funding.
- Although tuition is relatively low, for some students, even $2,979 for two semesters is a barrier.
- Although we have technology included in our programs, the lack of current technology for training is a challenge that can affect the marketability of graduates.
- Although we have a number of quality employees, funds are often not available for them to attend an off-site conference or consider furthering their education.
In all these situations, the Forsyth Tech Foundation can intervene through scholarships for students, grants for employees, and technology purchases to upgrade a program. We want to remove the words “if we only had the funds to…”
The need for support is consistent and significant, and in turn, the Foundation provides stewardship of donated resources that is thorough and ethical. We award student scholarships and employee professional development grants only after a formal review process. At the same time, senior management considers technology purchases in light of the overall plan for the college.
From a donor standpoint, there is something unique about Forsyth Tech. Because our tuition is relatively low (that $2,979), a donation at a certain level can affect a potentially greater number of people. Your support can make a lasting and expansive impact.
Whether it is an annual gift to the Forsyth Tech Fund, a targeted gift to support the Pathways to Possibilities Capital Campaign, a desire to create an endowed scholarship, a legacy gift included in your estate plans, or a gift in kind, your support means, to use a Forsyth Tech tagline, “more than you know!”
