Ways to Give

Give now online

When you make a gift to TSTC Harlingen, you make a real difference in the lives of students and become part of the great work we are doing. 

Your support helps foster student success and provide life-changing opportunities that might not otherwise exist due to lack of funding or financial difficulties. There are many ways for donors to contribute in the most effective and meaningful way, no matter how big or small the gift.

Gifts of Cash & Pledges

Cash gifts are immediately available to TSTC Harlingen for both donor designated and undesignated purposes. These types of gifts are the most common and can be made via check or out-right cash. Donors can also choose to pledge an amount of money to be given over a certain period of time.

Gifts In Kind

Some donors choose to make a gift of materials or equipment to enhance hands-on student learning.

Gifts of Securities, Real Estate, & Personal Property

Market conditions may have created an ideal giving opportunity for stocks, bonds, other securities, real estate or personal property, which can transfer to TSTC Harlingen, through the TSTC Foundation, and be a tax savings. 

Gifts of real estate can have special benefits for both the donor and the recipient. You may give real estate as a current gift and can receive a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the gift. Gifts must meet certain criteria in order to be accepted by the college. You can also transfer ownership of your personal residence and/or any additional land to the college. This is an exceptional way of supporting TSTC Harlingen while receiving tax deductions, yet still retain your property. (Note: Some laws apply to this type of gift. Seek legal counsel first.)

Matching Gifts

Many companies offer matching gift programs to encourage employees to make charitable contributions. Matching gifts are a great way for donors to maximize the impact of their gift. Check with your employer's human resources office to see if they sponsor a matching gift program to match charitable donations.

Planned Gifts

Donors can also leave a lasting legacy to our students. Through your will, trust, insurance policy, retirement plan, annuity or other plan, you can make the gift of a lifetime. Your planned gift helps ensure TSTC Harlingen's ability to deliver educational services and scholarships to our community far into the future, while matching your overall financial planning goals.

Memorials & Tributes

Donors may establish specially named scholarships and endowed scholarship funds as a tribute to a loved one, individual, group or in connection with a certain school or program. Creating an endowed scholarship fund allows donors to make a financial commitment to TSTC Harlingen and our students with an investment that will continue to give in the far future.  

Sponsor an Event

There are many activities held across TSTC Harlingen's campus and the surrounding area that provide the opportunity for community members to become involved in enhancing education in creative ways, which benefit the same way traditional avenues of giving do. Events include our Annual Noche de Gala and the RGV Best Robotics Competition. You can make your contribution toward these events now through our online giving feature.
