The Foundation hosts various events each year to engage the general community in fundraising that benefits the college.
Annual Golf Classic
The Piedmont Technical College Foundation and its partners gathered at The Links at Stoney Point on Friday, May 3, 2019, for the 27th Annual Piedmont Technical College Golf Classic. We are grateful to all of our partners, sponsors, donors, and volunteers for making this event possible to raise money for student scholarships. Mark your calendars now for next year's tournament, which is scheduled for April 24, 2020! Click here for Team Photos from this year. Click here for Photo Album from this year.
The Foundation assists students through various scholarship opportunities. The recipients of these scholarships represent a cross-section of talented individuals from Piedmont Technical College's academic programs. These scholarships help to retain the best and brightest talent for our local work force and provide educational opportunities to those who otherwise may not have been able to attend college. Scholarship recipients are recognized each spring with a luncheon.
The Cornerstone Society is an association of friends of the college who support the college through various estate planning tools and techniques. In 2018, for the first time, members of the Cornerstone Society participated in the college's annual Legislative Barbecue. The group used the occasion to award an induction plaque to its newest member, Dr. Lorraine Angelino, contracts management coordinator at Self Regional Healthcare. Pictured are, from left, Fran Wiley, Assistant VP for Development at the PTC Foundation; Dr. Brooks; Lorraine Angelino; and Jim Medford, board chair of the PTC Foundation.

Annually, the Piedmont Technical College Foundation hosts a barbecue dinner for local, state and federal legislators to raise awareness of PTC’s vital role in the work force development of South Carolina’s Lakelands region. Legislators and PTC officials discuss the college’s essential function in the region, South Carolina’s current economic status and how the budget deficits would affect the services provided by technical colleges.
