Sustainability Grants

Sustainable

The Foundation and Grants Office is pleased to participate in TMCC’s Year of Sustainability by supporting projects involving students and faculty and staff on campus. Do you need funding to assist with implementing your sustainability project?

Last semester, the TMCC Foundation and Grants Office announced Sustainability Grant funding to support the great ideas of faculty and staff at all TMCC locations. We awarded $4,000 to faculty and staff and this semester we have $6,000 remaining to award.
