The Fundraising Campaign
Why is the HACC Foundation conducting fundraising campaigns?
Central Pennsylvania faces important challenges and opportunities that HACC, Central Pennsylvania's Community College, is best positioned to address. The need for a skilled workforce has been cited by community leaders as critical to the region's economic development. Our citizens are not attending college at a rate that can generate and sustain regional prosperity. Therefore, HACC and the HACC Foundation are moving forward with fundraising campaigns to help the region resolve its challenges and capitalize on its opportunities. These campaigns will allow HACC to invest in the future for our region by increasing access and opportunity, leading workforce and economic development initiatives and ensuring access to excellence in instructional equipment and technology that will prepare the workforce.
What is a capital campaign? How is it different from your regular fundraising for the College?
The purpose of a capital campaign is to raise funds for a tangible product (something you can touch - a building or a piece of equipment, for example). HACC’s fundraising campaign is a comprehensive campaign, raising funds for four priorities - one capital priority (Bruce E. Cooper Student Center renovation) and three intangible priorities (emergency assistance funds, funds for excellence and scholarships).
What/who benefits from the five-year fundraising campaign?
