HCC Foundation

In true Heartland spirit, many of you have been asking how you can help our students during this time. Your donation to the HCC Student Emergency Fund can have an immediate impact on people’s lives.

In 2019, we established the HCC Student Emergency Fund to support students who may be adversely affected by unforeseen emergencies. Many of you may have heard about this fund through our recent Elevate Heartland campaign that focused on building an endowment for this fund. Our students are experiencing an emergency today with the COVID-19 virus. Your gift to this fund will help our students with the current issues they are facing, including housing and food insecurity, travel expenses, technology costs associated with online learning, and other financial challenges.

Thank you for your support!

Tree HCC: Plant It Forward

Quad Tree Layout

For a $500 donation, you would sponsor one of the trees or benches that will be placed on our quad. The rebirth of our quad is dependent solely on private donations. We are thrilled that over 70 community members have stepped forward to support a tree or bench in this campaign. We still have over 50 trees and benches available for your support. Your donation will include a plaque placed near your tree or on your bench, which you can personalize to remember an important person in your life or show how much you care about Heartland and our local students.

Read more about the quad and our tree campaign.

If you are interested and would like more information about this opportunity, please feel free to contact Chris Downing at or by calling 309-268-8587. Thank you for your support of the Heartland quad and planting it forward!
