For more than 40 years, the Holyoke Community College Foundation has helped Pioneer Valley students realize their hopes and dreams for the future. The Holyoke Community College Foundation was created to support those dreams and enable the college to meet the needs of the region's citizens and workforce.
Private support is essential to maintain access to quality, affordable public education for citizens throughout the region. Each year, the foundation (a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization that is fiscally and legally separate from the college), provides income that supplements state appropriations, which are currently less than 50% of the college's total budget. This income is critical to help fund student scholarships and internships, advance new inititatives, meet tomorrow's needs, and provide stability in uncertain economic times.
A gift to HCC is an investment in the region and the future.
