2018 TACCF Conference Sponsorship Opportunities

Thanks to the generosity of past sponsors, we have been able to double attendance to this conference as we increased the caliber of the programming.

The Texas Association of Community College Foundations (TACCF) hosts an annual conference for community college development professionals. In 2017, 39 of the 50 institutions were TACCF members and 75 development professionals attended in the conference. The conference provides a premier educational opportunity empowering community colleges to build the leadership role of their foundations and development offices to effect positive change for the communities they serve.
 
This year’s conference will be February 21-23, 2018 at the Renaissance Austin Hotel – Austin, Texas located at 9721 Arboretum Blvd, Austin, Texas 78759.  An updated conference program will be available in fall 2017. A block of hotel rooms has been secured at a discounted rate of $194 per night for the conference with a cutoff date of January 31, 2018.
 
We are excited to provide the following sponsorship opportunities. Thanks to the generosity of past sponsors, we have been able to double attendance to this conference as we increased the caliber of the programming. We look forward to talking with you about supporting this growing organization dedicated to increasing the philanthropic support to Texas community colleges through education of professionals in the field.
