Highland Community College

HCC Foundation

The Highland Community College Foundation is authorized to formally accept and acknowledge gifts for IRS purposes on behalf of the College. The HCC Foundation is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofit, non-stock corporation.


The Highland Community College Foundation was established in 1987 to assist the College in performing its mission; to receive and administer private gifts, bequests, and donations to benefit Highland's students; and to enhance the quality of teaching and learning at the College. Gifts to the Foundation support programs and activities not funded through traditional sources. At the same time, the Foundation provides assistance to donors through a comprehensive program of tax-wise gift alternatives through planned giving.


The mission of the Highland Community College Foundation is to secure and grow financial resources to support Highland Community College.


The HCC Foundation will increase its assets by cultivating relationships in the College's nine county service area and with alumni and friends around the world.


Prospective donors are encouraged to contact Keith Jaloma, Executive Director of the HCC Foundation, at kjaloma@highlandcc.edu.

Jim Hosier ’59 has stepped down from the HCC Foundation Board effective July 31, 2017 after serving nine years and leading the Foundation to its highest fundraising year ever and the most engaged board.  Jim received a framed photo of Irvin Hall and a commemorative framed certificate acknowledging his time on the Board.  We are grateful to Jim for his leadership, support and advocacy in the Atchison community.  Jim ’59 & Mary Ann Hosier were inducted into the HCC Heritage Society in October, 2017 as they have included the Foundation in their will.
