About the HCC Foundation
Our mission is to support access and excellence at Heartland Community College through fundraising, financial stewardship and advocacy.
Incorporated in 1992, the Heartland Community College Foundation is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) corporation dedicated to the enhancement and support of student learning and success at Heartland Community College.
We receive and administer gifts in many forms including monetary donations, bequests and real estate. We also organize a variety of fundraising events to support scholarship opportunities for Heartland students and to further solidify the College's strong relationship to the community.
Gifts to the Foundation ensure that access and excellence continue to be fundamental principles. They can provide for:
- educational programs
- equipment purchases
- campus enhancements
- special projects
