Herbert and Edith Mausser Memorial Endowed Scholarship Fund

Herbert and Edith Mausser were committed to the role that education would play in creating a better life for themselves and their children as they came to the United States.The Maussers worked tirelessly to ensure a bright future for their four children. They proudly watched their children walk the stage as first-generation college students earning baccalaureate degrees.

The Maussers appreciated Tri-C's technical, transfer and Honors programs as gateways to opportunity. Their faith in the American dream led them to establish the Herbert and Edith Mausser Memorial Endowed Scholarship Fund to support first-generation college students in their pursuit of a better life.

Honoring the memory of Jeffrey Tuma

Honoring the legacy of Jeffrey Tuma

Tri-C Foundation is grateful for gifts in memory of Jeffrey Tuma. His tremendous legacy exemplified service and commitment as a mentor and leader to Tri-C students, faculty, the College, and the Greater Cleveland community.

For nearly 30 years, Jeff positively impacted the lives of students by inspiring a love for the study of logic, critical thinking, and ethics as a tenured assistant professor of philosophy at Tri-C. He championed the humanities working with our Mandel Scholars program, served as president of Tri-C's American Association of University Professors chapter, helped lead the College's Robert L. Lewis Academy of Scholars, and lent his experience and expertise to many Collegewide academic and mentoring initiatives. Gifts in his memory will support the Jeffrey Tuma Student Emergency Fund.

Your Impact

Your Impact

Tri-C is a driving force for the economic prosperity and future of our region. Your support for student success through the Tri-C Foundation is an investment toward a thriving Northeast Ohio now and for years to come.

Did you know.... 49% of Tri-C’s student population is eligible for the Pell Grant, indicating high economic need. Even through Cuyahoga Community College is the most affordable institution in the state of Ohio, without scholarship support, many students would not be able to afford the cost of tuition. 

Students earning degrees and credentials from Tri-C can move themselves and their families from poverty to prosperity.
