Board Chair's Message


On behalf of the Fayetteville Technical Community College Foundation, thank you for your continued support of FTCC, its core mission, and purpose. Established in 1985, the Foundation is proud to provide decades of support in the advancement of FTCC and its students through scholarships, tuition assistance, provision for college program initiatives, capital improvements, and other funding. This support is even more important today in the wake of reduced state funding, limited financial aid for students, and the increasing burden of student loans.

FTCC is one of our community’s greatest resources and assets. We are able to educate, train, and provide continuing education to our community’s current and next-generation workforce through a wide variety of strategic and advanced programs. Some of the programs that FTCC offers include the Collision Repair and Refinishing Technology Program, Global Logistics & Distribution Management Technology, Culinary Arts, and Business Administration. FTCC provides training for paralegals, nurses, dental hygienists, funeral service professionals, and many more. I would be remiss in not mentioning the valued relationship FTCC shares with our military community, especially Ft. Bragg. We are truly grateful to be able to offer flexible programs of study for soldiers and Transition Tech, a program to provide transitioning soldiers the tools and specialized credentials to excel when entering the civilian workforce. FTCC is also home of the All American Veterans Center.

In mid 2016, FTCC returned to the intercollegiate sports world by joining the NJCAA Division II program and brought both men’s and women’s basketball and golf athletics programs to the campus. The spirit surrounding athletics has bolstered the excitement of FTCC’s booming campus.

The Foundation’s work and support of these programs would not be possible without the backing of our community, local businesses, faculty, students, alumni, and individual donors. If you are interested in investing in the future workforce of our community and FTCC student graduates, please consider joining the Foundation today in support of our mission.

Go Trojans!
