The Georgia Highlands College Foundation Inc. has been committed to supporting the College for five decades and was originally founded as the Floyd College Foundation in 1973.  As the College expanded into Cartersville, the Cartersville/Bartow College Foundation was established in 1999.  In support of the institution's growth and regional expansion, the two foundations were combined, and the name was changed to the Georgia Highlands College Foundation in 2005. 

The Foundation works closely with the College to create a superior educational environment through philanthropic support.  The Foundation aids GHC by raising awareness, promotion the College, building relationships and the resources needed to support educational opportunities and success for all GHC students.  Through these efforts, donations received provide much-needed student scholarships and support special funding initiatives and services through development of a comprehensive campaign strategy to include major gifts, annual fund, and planned giving programs.

The leadership provided by the Foundation Trustees combined with the efforts of the College's Foundation staff is essential to the success of the College and the students who attend.  As a regional, multi-campus institution serving many counties, the Foundation's aim is to reach and help cultivate GHC's growing economic and educational impact in Northwest Georgia.

Georgia Highlands College is indebted to the community leaders who serve as foundation trustees and the many donors who support the mission of GHC and embrace its vision.
