History of the FTCC Foundation, Inc.
The Fayetteville Technical Community College Foundation, Inc. was established in 1984 as a private, nonprofit corporation to provide flexible fiscal resources for Fayetteville Technical Community College, its faculty and students. One of the primary purposes of the Foundation's fund-raising efforts is to support tuition and textbook scholarships for students, many of whom could not otherwise afford to further their education.
Benefactors on campus, in the community and throughout the state contribute tax-deductible monetary and other gifts to the Foundation which are used to help students as they seek to further their education at Fayetteville Tech. The Foundation also supports staff development activities and campus improvements.
The Foundation's logo reflects the organization's commitment to FTCC students. The logo depicts the gazebo located in front of the Student Center on Hull Road.
The gazebo is a popular gathering place for students and is also the site of special events on campus. The Gazebo was given to the College by the late Thomas R. McLean in memory of his wife Elizabeth. Mr. McLean, who died in December 1998, was a beloved trustee and benefactor of the College and Foundation.
