March 5, 2015: Fairfield County's Giving Day
Housatonic proudly celebrates the support of the Fairfield County’s Community Foundation and encourages everyone to join in to the Day of Giving event, which serves so many deserving causes.
Last year, Fairfield County came together for 24 hours to support the work of local non-profits. And what a day! Over $750,000 was raised by 9,211 individuals to benefit 267 non-profits. Also, Fairfield County’s Community Foundation is a generous supporter of HCC students and programs.
Fairfield County’s Community Foundation is thrilled to provide this opportunity once again - bigger and better than ever!
On Thursday, March 5th, log on to: https://fcgives.org/#npo/housatonic-community-college to donate to HCC on Fairfield County’s Giving Day!
