The Galveston College Foundation exists to support and enhance the ability of Galveston College to accomplish its mission of improving people’s lives through lifelong learning.
Beginning in the fall of 2018, the Galveston College Foundation Universal Access Community Endowment scholarship will institute a new lifetime limit of $4,620 for full-time and part-time students, which covers tuition and required fees for a 60-credit hour associate degree. All students must have a degree plan on file. Upon enrollment for the Universal Access Community Endowment award, a student’s allocation must be used within a five-year period. A one-time $200 book-only voucher will be given to each eligible student and must be used in the first semester that it is assessed. The un-used balance will not be forwarded to future semesters.
The traditional sources of funding available to the college (state funding, property taxes, tuition and fees) are not enough to provide for all that needs to be done. The Galveston College Foundation provides opportunities for any individual, company or other organization to make a difference in our community by supporting Galveston College. There are many ways that you can assist the College to fulfill its vision of being.

Heirs may also qualify for federal and/or state estate tax deduction, reducing the taxable portion of an estate. Donors are extended special recognition and the opportunity to be part of private receptions honoring those who partner with President and the Board of Regents for the College’s evolution as a premier institution of higher learning for people of Galveston.
