***Given the growing concerns around COVID-19, we are saddened to share that we’ve made the difficult decision to cancel the Donor Reception scheduled for Wednesday, April 8. This was a tough call to make – the Donor Reception is one of our favorite ways to celebrate student achievement — but we need to prioritize the health and safety of everyone who participates in the event. Please be advised that scholarships are in no way affected by this event cancellation, nor by recent changes to instruction for the semester.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time. Please do not hesitate to reach out if we can answer any questions or be of assistance.***
Building a Community
In the short time since its creation in 1997, the OTC Foundation has impacted thousands of students by helping donors to invest in OTC and improve our community.
The Foundation’s work empowers the college to aid students, families and businesses. While we invest in education, we also invest in economic development. Where else can a person rise from welfare to the workforce in two years? What better way for our community to grow and prosper than removing the stress of poverty?
From scholarships and emergency assistance to building projects and equipment updates, the OTC Foundation works to impact students every day. We see the fruits of our labor each May when hundreds of students walk the stage at graduation with a smile, knowing they have changed their lives for the better.
None of this would be possible without our supporters – the companies, families and individuals who have invested in education through a gift to the OTC Foundation. We invite you to join us in our mission to create a better community one student at a time.
Investing in Tomorrow
Our 2019 campaign, Investing in Tomorrow, is focused on providing scholarships to students attending OTC. On average, scholarship recipients tend to have higher GPAs and completion rates. The campaign will give students–ranging from single mothers, to veterans to recent high school graduates—an opportunity to invest in their future, creating a better tomorrow for everyone.
