The College Innovation Fund was created in 2007 to provide funding for faculty and staff to create innovative projects four our campus. Projects are wide and varied, each providing opportunity create something new on our campus. Since its inception, this fund has provided over $200,000 for 65 projects.

Eagle Relief Fund Program

This initiative was developed by two service learning courses in ENC 1102 in response to the needs of our community after Hurricane Michael. The original goal was to provide needed supplies each week to the communities hit so hard by the storm. As the project continued it became clear that there was much more need on our campus for students affected by Poverty. As such, the TCC Foundation Board of Directors built on this initiative to create a Program that would provide dollars to students in need.

Heroes in Public Safety 

For many in public safety in the Big Bend, the road to their public safety career included study at Tallahassee Community College – the Florida Public Safety Institute (FPSI) and the Ghazvini Center for Health Care Education. The purpose of this Program is to recognize and honor public safety personnel (law enforcement officers, firefighters, fish and wildlife officers, emergency medical technicians/paramedics, juvenile justice officers, corrections officers, and communications personnel) who put their lives on the line and/or who provide direct support for the safety and protection of Florida’s citizens and visitors.

Oyster Aquaculture Program

The TCC Foundation created a micro-loan program to support the first ten students of the Oyster Aquaculture Program at the Wakulla Environmental Institute.  Megan is one of the members of the inaugural class. She is a Wakulla County resident who completed high school but was unsure of what to do professionally.  She was not working and felt she was stuck in a rut until her father learned about the Oyster Aquaculture Program. Megan and her father decided to enroll together.  The support of the Foundation has enabled Megan and her classmates to purchase the oyster seed, cages, poles and line needed to begin their oyster crop as well obtain their submerged land lease. It also provides for training of oyster cultivation and business management including marketing and sales. Upon graduation, the cohort will have a fully operating oyster aquaculture business.  This program is now in its third year, preparing students for a new career and supporting Wakulla County’s local economy.
