A gift to HCC Foundation's Soar For Excellence Fund is an investment in the lives of our students, businesses and communities who benefit from the education, training and many other services we offer. Your financial support  allows flexibility to meet unexpected needs for deserving HCC students who are working hard to achieve their dreams, but are struggling to finance a college education.


  • $816 will pay a semester of tuition and fees for a full-time in-district student.
  • $208.50 will cover the cost of a single three-hour credit course.
  • $100 will buy a textbook for a student studying anything from calculus to computed tomography.


Beyond the personal satisfaction that comes from supporting Houston  Community College, there are other benefits of giving. Your gift to the  Foundation is tax-deductible to the extent provided by law. You will receive  recognition in our annual report and in our donor honor roll on the website.

The HCC Foundation exists to make that critical difference in a student’s ability to enroll, complete their degree or certificate, and contribute to the quality of life of their families and that of the entire Greater Houston community.

In 2015-2016, the Foundation awarded more than $1.2 million in scholarship dollars to nearly 1,100 students.


Support the HCC Foundation in our mission to help students succeed by providing scholarships and grants. Every gift, no matter the size, has an impact on the lives of HCC students and their families.
