Ways to Give

Make a Texas-sized difference in the lives of our students.AdobeStock 208684536 scaled - The TSTC Foundation


Scholarships can relieve the financial burdens that many of our students face and let them focus on their schoolwork. We want TSTC students to reach their goals and realize their potential. You can help them on the path to success through the gift of scholarship funds.


Gifts-in-kind are valuable contributions to The TSTC Foundation. Gifts in the form of lab equipment, supplies and other tangible items can strengthen programs and improve learning facilities at TSTC.

Helping Hands Scholarships

 Helping Hands scholarships offers emergency aid to students at any campus to cover essential needs. This critical funding gives students the opportunity to focus on their programs instead of financial burdens that may keep them from finishing their classes.

Annual Corporate Campaign

The TSTC Foundation works diligently to further TSTC’s mission of closing the skills gap for Texas industry. We dive into our local business communities and forge relationships with industry leaders and supporters to encourage a spirit of philanthropy. 

Working together provides a critical piece to providing countless students with financial assistance through scholarships and emergency aid. Equipment donations advance program curricula, thereby ensuring graduates’ job readiness. But we are not finished. We need your help.

Be a part of the solution and join hundreds of business and industry leaders across the state. Give today to The TSTC Foundation’s Annual Corporate Campaign.
