Mission:
The Grayson County College Foundation, Inc. exists to bridge the gap between the needs and resources of Grayson College. The Foundation, a Texas non-profit corporation was chartered with the Secretary of State in 1991 and obtained its IRS 501c3 exemption in 1992 to address the following goals: to generate funds and endowments for scholarships to GC students; encourage gifts for facilities and equipment; develop private funding sources for new programmatic ventures; and communicate the evolving needs of the College to business, educational, cultural, governmental, and other constituencies to facilitate collaborative and mutually supportive relationships. The Foundation continuously seeks new sources of financial support, beyond the scope of tax-based funding. New grants and revenue sources must be sought to replace gaps resulting from significant legislative reductions in order to provide the tools and resources for all students to achieve success. The Foundation is governed by a 25 member board of directors. Dr. Roy Renfro serves as the Executive Director of the Foundation, which maintains 3.5 FTE staff positions.
Results:
During the past 12 months, the Foundation successfully received over $1 million in donor gifts and $2.5 million in federal, state and private grant funding, which included funding for a new Career Training Center. More than $380,000 was distributed in scholarships to 300+ students raised from alumni, foundations, community donors, and college employees. An additional $160,000 was received to provide 62 merit scholarships to students who made 3.0 in high school math and science courses.
