The Invest. Impact. Inspire. Campaign for HACC Ended Dec. 31, 2020
YOUR Gift Counted! Thank you!
At HACC, we are devoted to enhancing the student experience and inspiring success for as many lives as possible. Our students share the dream to transform and positively alter their way of life – forever. The Invest. Impact. Inspire. Campaign for HACC allowed us to provide the much-needed support for our students.
Thanks to generous, broad-based community support, the HACC Foundation surpassed three of the four campaign goals . We suspended the Invest. Impact. Inspire. Campaign for HACC in spring 2021 due to the global coronavirus pandemic. We shifted our focus to better serve our students and communities, including raising funds for our funds for excellence.
Because of YOU!
Over $2 million have been raised to support critical student services in the Bruce E. Cooper Student Center.
9 new emergency assistance funds were created to assist students facing financial barriers.
50 new funds for excellence were created to support faculty projects that will enhance student learning.
106 new scholarships were established for students to achieve their academic and career goals.
2,655 donors have contributed to the campaign.
19,450 students currently served by HACC. More than 7,500 students, 400 full-time employees and countless visitors are served in the new Cooper Student Center each day!
…the student success services that exist here, from tutoring, guidance, support, and encouragement help students to reach their goals whenever they have any kind of struggles.
~ Taqi, HACC student
245 students received emergency assistance funds to keep from dropping out due to unexpected crises. $119,620 in emergency assistance have been awarded, and 73% of students who received emergency assistance were able to stay enrolled or graduate.
…thanks to HACCs emergency assistance fund i was able to continue through this semester. I had a car and home emergency that would have prevented me from affording travel to class as well as anything class had required. Because of the generosity of this fund, and HACC as a whole, I intend to donate back once I am successfully established in my new career!
~ Alison, HACC emergency assistance recipient
206 new, innovative projects were funded to keep HACC on the cutting edge of education, such as the English as a Second Language (ESL) Fund for Excellence.
As international student, I choose HACC because it will help me improve my English which is my second language.
~Shaina, HACC student
6,159 scholarships were awarded to help students pursue their education. Over $4.4 million in scholarships have been awarded.
Being awarded the Scholarship Award means so much to me because it lightens the financial burden and allows me to focus on my classes. Your generosity is helping more than just me, it is also helping my two sons whom I'm trying to make a better life for. I promise to not let your generosity go to waste.
