There are two main ways to provide financial support for the important work being done at HCTC: annual giving or planned giving.

Annual Giving

If you make a cash donation today to HCTC, that's considered Annual Giving. These one-time cash gifts will be immediately invested in short-term needs such as buying new course materials for one of our academic programs, paying salaries to student tutors, or a host of other immediate needs.

Planned Giving

HCTC allows individuals the opportunity to ensure the College's financial well-being by making gifts that provide a maximum benefit for the College, while decreasing the income tax, estate and gift tax burdens upon their estates and descendants. Philanthropic giving can support your personal financial needs and tax planning. With the assistance of your tax and legal advisors, HCTC can assist you in making a difference in the future while you gain the greatest benefits today.
