About the Foundation

Our History

In 1970, three short years after the establishment of Tri County Vocational School, District #1, the Tri County Vo-Tech Foundation was established. Initially, the Foundation focused on providing funds to students enrolling in the Nursing Education program.

Over the years, the Tri County Tech Foundation has evolved to where it is today. Changes have ranged from an updated name to a much larger student population, but the mission has remained the same. The Tri County Tech Foundation is committed to ensuring that no student is denied an education due to their inability to pay.

“Thank you so much for the emergency assistance grant and gas card. You have helped me stay in school and continue to live in my apartment. I feel truly blessed to attend such an amazing school.”

Today, the Tri County Tech Foundation has a phenomenal commitment from TCT staff members, with 100% of TCT staff contributing over $60,000 annually to the Foundation. This internal commitment demonstrates the strong belief in the good that is being done by the Foundation. Among staff members, this commitment is seen as providing a better future for generations to come.
