Welcome to the HCCC Foundation


Established in 1997, the Hudson County Community College Foundation supports and promotes the College and its students by building awareness and developing financial resources.

In keeping with its vision that all Hudson County residents should be afforded the opportunity to acquire a college education and enjoy the lifelong benefits of that education, the HCCC Foundation works diligently to find and generate the funding that provides scholarships for students, seed money for new and innovative programs, stipends for faculty development, capital to assist the College in its physical expansion, and resources to address basic needs and insecurities of our HCCC community members and students beyond the classroom.
