Herkimer County College Foundation
The Herkimer County College Foundation, Inc., was established in 1967 as a not-for-profit corporation. The Foundation assists HCCC through the acquisition of private funds and real property. The Foundation has developed over 90 scholarship programs that award more than $150,000 annually to many deserving students. It has been instrumental in the acquisition of land for future campus expansion and the development of student housing adjacent to the campus. Grants are awarded each year to faculty and staff for ongoing professional development and independent research. The Foundation also invests in other College programs, such as instructional technology, graduation activities and awards events. The Foundation plays a vital role in the enhancement of campus life, as well as assuring that the College continues its demonstrated commitment to higher education.
