The FPC Development Corporation
The purpose of the Development Corporation is to strengthen and contribute to the educational mission of Frank Phillips College by seeking, receiving, and distributing gifts, bequests, and donations, and to account for and manage assets submitted to the Corporation on behalf of FPC and the residents of its service area, the top nine counties of the Texas Panhandle.
A non-profit, tax-exempt Texas corporation founded in 1981, the Development Corporation consists of a group of community members who seek to obtain gifts and grants needed beyond the scope of tax-based funding, and to manage and expend these items for the development of Frank Phillips College. The Development Corporation funds are distributed to benefit and advance the College, and for the encouragement and assistance of its students and faculty.
Development Corporation activities include, but are not limited to:
- Community awareness
- Scholarships and loans to students of FPC
- Development of special facilities
- Purchase real estate for the expansion of the college
- Recognition of outstanding educators
- Recognition of outstanding scholarship or leadership
Members of the Development Corporation are the original Board of Directors, or any person, organization, or corporation making an annual gift of $250 or more to Frank Phillips College Development Corporation. A self-perpetuating Board of Directors representing the positive leadership of the community governs the Corporation.
