HCC System Foundation
The Houston Community College Foundation supports HCC in its efforts to attract and educate Houston-area students with the desire and the dedication to learn - including many non-traditional students and those facing barriers to higher education.
The mission of the Houston Community College Foundation is to enhance the quality of life of our community and of our fellow citizens through fundraising efforts that improve access to higher education, support career and technology training, and advance student learning at Houston Community College.
The HCC Foundation supports HCC's mission by providing financial assistance in three main areas:
Student Scholarships & Endowments
The HCC Foundation has awarded thousands of scholarships to deserving HCC students. The Foundation's long-term goal is to build a scholarship endowment sufficient to award a scholarship to all HCC credit-hour students who qualify for assistance as they begin their college career.
Capital Projects and Program Support
The HCC Foundation provides financial assistance to selected HCC programs and capital projects.
Faculty Grants and Awards
The HCC Foundation recognizes their faculty members' key role in achieving HCC's mission. They support their efforts by providing grants for projects that have the potential to advance student learning at HCC.
