About the OFTC Foundations

OFTC recently announced the merger of its two foundations into one OFTC Foundation, effective July 1. Because the former Heart of Georgia Technical Institute and Sandersville Regional Technical College merged in 2011 to become OFTC, both foundation trustees felt it was in the best interest of their communities to remain separate. But now, 10 years later, the OFTC Foundation North and the OFTC Foundation South prepare to merge and become one cohesive OFTC Foundation. Despite the merger of the two foundations into one, the mission of the OFTC Foundation will remain the same – to support the students and programs at OFTC.
