HACC is proud to announce that we are doing our part to help our students and community through these challenging times.

Please read about our HACC Heroes who have selflessly helped our students, employees and community throughout the pandemic.

The pandemic has resulted in unexpected and catastrophic changes to our lives. Members of our community are losing jobs, homes and businesses. Others are considering career changes when this is all over.

  • Current students who have extraordinary financial circumstances can apply for monies from the HACC Foundation emergency assistance funds
  • HACC placed information about external resources prominently on its website homepage. Students who need assistance with food, housing and other necessities can easily access these resources.

The HACC Foundation has implemented both short-term and long-term solutions to help our students and community in need.

Our funds for excellence help us implement transformative and impactful initiatives that have a direct impact on our students and community:

HACC has decided to refrain from aggressively raising funds during the global pandemic. However, in response to those supporters who have asked how they can assist our students, please visit hacc.edu/GiveNow to make your tax-deductible contribution today. Please also consider gifting all or part of your stimulus check to support HACC students in need.

Thank you.
