Help Support the TC Fund

Great work is going on right now at TC in education, psychology and health that has the potential to have an enormous impact on children, families, communities and organizations throughout the country and the world. But this work requires an investment in our future. Thousands of alumni participate in the TC Fund each year, ensuring that our faculty and students have the support they need to lead the way as innovators and pioneers in shaping the future of teaching and learning. Your support,at any level, matters. Make a gift to the TC Fund and be a part of our future.
