Why We Give
HACC is special because our alumni, friends, faculty and staff, students and parents are so passionate about making Central Pennsylvania a better place. They generously give back to the College for many reasons. The stories behind each gift reveal the grit, gratitude and optimism that define our HACC community.
In a recent survey of HACC Foundation donors, supporting our students was the number one reason for giving. Nearly 70 percent of respondents said they contribute to scholarships for students' tuition and books.
Donors also give out of gratitude. In the survey, nearly 40 percent of respondents said they contribute to the HACC Foundation because... "I have personally benefitted from it and give out of loyalty."
In Central Pennsylvania, many businesses and other organization contribute to HACC because the College educates the next generation of workers and citizens of the region. HACC is vital to future economic development.
