Message from the Foundation Chair Buzz Freeman

Senior Vice President and Coastal Area Executive, The Conway National Bank

It is with great enthusiasm that I greet you on behalf of the Horry Georgetown Technical College Foundation and our Board of Directors!

Buzz Freeman

Our Foundation provides support to Horry Georgetown Technical College as it provides quality, affordable higher education to the residents of Horry and Georgetown Counties.

We work together with many donors to help fund new programs of study, enhancements to existing programs, equipment needs, building needs, student scholarships, temporary student emergency funding, and many other College initiatives that are not funded through the state or other traditional revenue sources.

The HGTC Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation and is a separate legal entity from the College. Donations made to the Foundation are tax deductible for federal and state income tax purposes. We are proud of our 30-plus years of partnering with Horry Georgetown Technical College for its continued success for the Horry Georgetown community.

Thank you to our current investors and to all who have given of their support in the past!

If this is your first point of contact with the Foundation, we would appreciate the opportunity to sit down with you to discuss the many ways that you can contribute to the success of the thousands of students who are enrolled in Horry Georgetown Technical College. Not all of them are financial. Internships, jobs, sharing your business or professional expertise with our students in a classroom or more informal setting, and other forms of investment in the College are also welcome and needed.

We believe that once you have been provided with a complete picture of the many positive ways in which Horry Georgetown Technical College impacts the stability and growth of the Horry Georgetown workforce, and economy, you may want to participate in some way to help the College achieve its new and enhanced goals.

Please know that we are not about the "hard sell". We simply seek to develop long-term friendships with people from all walks of life who may find personal fulfillment in knowing that they are helping smart, dedicated, positive and focused students pursue their higher education in order to earn a degree that they can immediately put to productive and rewarding use in the Horry Georgetown workforce.

Horry Georgetown Technical College students do not graduate and then go to work in some other state. More than 90 percent of the College's graduates live here and work here. No other institution of higher education can make that claim. That is Horry Georgetown Technical College's exclusive mission within the Horry and Georgetown communities. It is a mission that the College performs exceedingly well. And it is a mission that is worthy of your support.

Contact us at 843-477-2174, 843-477-2105 or at foundation@hgtc.edu for further information.

Thank you for your interest and consideration!
