Foundation The Foundation for the College System of Tennessee (formerly the TCAT Foundation), is the primary charitable organization for the System. It was established to support the System through advocacy, marketing and fundraising to benefit our colleges, students, programs and faculty. The mission of the Foundation for the College System of Tennessee is to encourage, support and promote the advancement and awareness of the System and its member institutions as it serves as a vital workforce development resource. The Foundation assists in fundraising and capital campaigns and creates opportunities for the System not provided by state funding. The Foundation is guided by a board whose members are leaders in business, education and nonprofit organizations. Each member has a keen interest in public colleges and student success.
