HCC's 75th Anniversary Campaign

As we celebrate the 75th anniversary of Hagerstown Community College, we embark on our most ambitious campaign to date. Our initial goal was to raise $7,500,000; yet, with tremendous success during the “quiet phase,” we extended our campaign target to $10,500,000. Due to the immense support that our community has shown HCC and our mission, we increased our stretch goal to raise $12,000,000 by December 31st, 2022. The goal of the 75th Anniversary Campaign is simple: to raise substantial scholarship dollars to ensure that every student who wants an education has access to HCC’s excellent educational programs and resources.

Scholarships have more than a monetary value – ninety percent (90%) of HCC Foundation scholarship recipients are academically successful. This is remarkable, considering most of these students have financial need and might not otherwise be able to attend school. When our students succeed, the entire Washington County community does as well. We need your support to empower our students.

Help us achieve our 75th Anniversary vision by:

  • Increasing student scholarship support;
  • Supporting program innovation and workforce development;
  • Strengthening student services to meet emerging needs and remove barriers to success; and
  • Creating new infrastructure to support student athletics, the arts, and community engagement.

Whatever your passion and vision for the community, HCC will partner with you to help achieve it. Because of our lean operating costs, low overhead, and strategic investment and stewardship of donations, every dollar invested in student scholarships and services generates an outsized impact for students - 100% of donations raised in this campaign will directly benefit our students.

 

Invest in HCC students now by giving to Gem for Generations: HCC’s 75th Anniversary Campaign, enabling our region to thrive for generations to come.

Endowing New Student Scholarships


Endowed student scholarships are the flagship program of the HCC Foundation. Every year we award nearly $500,000 in scholarships - Our vision is to double that amount to $1,000,000.

Strengthening Student Services


HCC seeks to ensure that tutoring, emergency financial aid, or items from our food pantry are available for all who need them to limit these barriers to success.

Workforce Training for a Strong Region


Career certifications have grown significantly in scope and importance in today’s workforce. Scholarships for these programs will create pipelines to local employers and benefit us all.
