The Countdown to Giving Day is On


The countdown is on.

Join us on Thursday, March 1, for Giving Day, a 24-hour rush to raise donations and awareness for the Housatonic Community College Foundation (HCCF).

Funds raised from Giving Day will go directly toward HCCF’s Scholarship Fund, which provides financial assistance including tuition, textbooks and childcare to students in need. Continued funding of the Scholarship Fund increases the number of students awarded scholarships.  

In addition to attracting donors, the HCCF strives to raise awareness about the importance of philanthropy for the future of the college, the communities it serves within Connecticut and future students.

“Education is our number one goal,” Said Director of Institutional Advancement and Resource Development, Fiona Hodgson. “Funds from HCCF go to professional development, technology and skills training, equipment and facility acquisitions and enhancements to academic programs. This support is critical for HCC to remain a current and vital resource to its students and the Greater Bridgeport community.”

Donations can be made anytime between midnight and 11:59 p.m. at
