How you can help
The generous support of donors is vital to the continued effective operation and fulfillment of the mission of Horry-Georgetown Technical College. As such, individuals, businesses and organizations may partner with the College through financial support of a number of categories.
General Giving: The Foundation coordinates regular Annual Campaigns and Special Multi-Year Campaigns designed to raise funds for specific purposes. Contributors to these Campaigns are enrolled in "classes," which include both Individual and Corporate Contributors, Benefactors, Founder's Circle, President's Circle, Chairman's Circle, Investor's Circle, and Leadership Circle. Giving in these classes is counted $1 to $100,000 per year and credit is given for every dollar contributed to support Foundation campaigns. No contribution is too large or too small!
Those who support the College/Foundation through its General Giving Campaigns also are designated as Life Members in the Foundation's records.
Naming Opportunities: In addition to having the option to give to support and/or establish "Named" Scholarships (view details), donors may endow Departmental Funds or Academic Chairs in specific academic programs of study. Typically, these named endowments begin at $50,000.
Also, the Foundation works with the HGTC Area Commission, the governing board of the College, to provide naming opportunities for the various new and renovated facilities of the College. These naming opportunities include classrooms, academic, science and computer laboratories; meeting rooms and conference spaces, auditoriums, libraries, buildings, and campuses. Typically, the naming of facilities requires contributions from $50,000 to $1,000,000.
The Legacy Society: In addition to current contributions, the Foundation actively supports planned giving opportunities that can substantially benefit the donor. The basic philosophy of the Foundation is that financial planning is NOT Planned Giving. We believe that we must start with a few major assumptions, including that you and/or your significant other manage your financial assets, but that there will come a time when you will no longer be able to do so. When that time arrives, you can plan for the management of your assets or you can NOT plan for the management of your assets, which is, essentially, planning to let the state manage your assets.
When you are ready to plan for the future financial management of your assets, the HGTC Foundation is available to provide advice and assistance with the development of plans that can be of significant financial value to the donor.
