HCC Educational Foundation
The HCC Educational Foundation (HCCEF) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation that provides funds for scholarships, grants and programs that benefit the college. Established in 1978, the HCCEF's mission is to improve lives and create opportunities by funding pathways to student success.
Scholarships are critical to allow students in financial need and academically outstanding students to begin their college careers or enhance skills for tomorrow's jobs. Without aid, many students would be unable to afford to pursue their education. With requests for aid increasing along with enrollment, the need for increased giving is crucial.
The HCCEF is governed by a dedicated volunteer board of directors made up of community and business leaders. Click here for a list of the foundation's board of directors. Contributions to the HCCEF are tax deductible to the fullest extent provided by law. One hundred percent of gifts go to support the scholarship, endowment or program of the donor's choice. All administrative costs are covered by the college to ensure that all of the money raised goes directly to scholarships or to advance and support the programs and facilities of Howard Community College.
