Grow a Community of Scholars Who Can Take On the World: 25 Years Strong!

Honors education at HCC celebrates 25 years in 2021-2022. We believe you are reading this because Honors made a difference in your life. We hope you can pay that impact forward. Nowhere in higher education is the population more diverse or more in need, while at the same time the most at the mercy of budget cuts and shortfalls than at community colleges. Honors is no exception. We need your support, and a donation to the HCC Foundation designated to Honors will help make the difference.

Our program currently has more than 1500 graduates. If every grad was to give just $25 a month for one year, the endowment would grow by $450,000! Consider the support you received from HCC and Honors and the money you saved and earned over time because of that support. Just the return on such an investment of this proportion would fund the Honors programming for our students for many years to come. You can make a difference now.

Income from the Honors endowment goes to fund programming such as local field trips, college visits, common reads, speakers of note, and international travel – all important components of Honors programming. Our students will continue to flourish through your support. Won’t you please take a moment to contribute?
