About TC3

Create Your Legacy and Invest in TC3's Future

Gift planning offers opportunities for alumni, friends of the College, TC3 faculty and staff to make a gift to the College while at the same time achieving personal financial goals. Careful gift and estate planning allows you to make certain you have provided for your heirs while at the same time enabling you to continue your generous support of the College. 

Your planned gift could fund a scholarship, new technology, the TC3 fund or a program at the College that has a special meaning to you. Whatever form your planned gift takes, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that you have invested in the success of future generations of TC3 students.  

Richard R. ShawThe Shaw Legacy Society for TC3 named in honor of Richard R. Shaw, recognizes and honors the commitment of a special group of donors who have generously provided for the College in their estate plan or have established a permanently endowed scholarship at TC3. Through their foresight and leadership they have demonstrated their commitment to ensuring continued academic excellence at the College. Members of the Shaw Society invite you to join them in making a difference in the lives of TC3 students.
