Our Business Partners

Our business partners are instrumental in supporting our mission to enrich students' lives through earned financial assistance for college as well as the professional supplies required to begin a skilled trade or military career. The Thillen Education Foundation is deeply grateful for the generous support of businesses, community organizations, and individual donors who believe in our mission to break the cycle of poverty through education. We stand committed to embracing an inclusive, diverse and equitable mindset in all endeavors. Thank you for joining us on this incredible journey into a brighter future. ​​

Our Community Partners

The students attending Greene College & Career Academy also participate in other support organizations in our local community.  These organizations including Pete Nance Boys & Girls Club, Greene County Habitat for Humanity and Atlas Ministries can utilize and reinforce the benefit of having a career plan, a career coach and the opportunity to earn financial assistance to further their education, begin a career or begin military service.  A number of individuals associated with our community partners are also part of our career coaching program and work with the same high school students in two capacities.  

We stand committed to embracing a diverse, equitable, and inclusive mindset in all endeavors.
