For more than 50 years, HCC has lifted our community by providing opportunities for students to achieve success. The HCC Foundation’s first major fundraising campaign has been a big part of the celebration of the college’s anniversary. We’ve called it HCC Rising: Together We Lift Our Community, a fitting name for our effort to support this wonderful grassroots educational institution. We are proud to say that HCC Rising has been very successful, and we are not done yet! HCC Rising will close on December 31, 2019.

We ask you, our alumni, current students, retirees, and the public to help us lift even more HCC students with a gift of “$50 for 50.” A donation of $50, or if you are able, $50 a month, can make a difference for students well into the future. Won’t you be part of helping us reach our goal of increasing our endowment and supporting students in our next 50 years?

You can make your donation on the safe online giving form below, or contact us at or at (813) 253-7114 to learn more about how you can help at this level and beyond. Options for creating named endowments as well as naming rooms in the new Patel Allied Health Building are also still available for those who want to make an even more lasting impact.

Thank you for supporting HCC and the Foundation as we continue to lift our students to achieve success in our community!
