Great things are happening at HCC because of the generosity of our community leaders, through their gifts, time, and talents. This support is the foundation of our beginning as a community college and is the backbone of our strength as we grow.

Our History

The foundation was chartered on May 17, 1967 as the Pennyrile Education Foundation, Inc. as a separate and independent 501(c)(3) fund-raising organization to support HCC. Reorganized in the early 1990s, the Foundation changed its name to Community College Foundation of Hopkinsville, Inc. on March 11, 1994 to more clearly reflect its mission. On March 16, 2000, the Foundation adopted its current name, Hopkinsville Community College Foundation, Inc. On August 17, 2000, HCC and the Foundation entered into a Memorandum of Understanding through which the Foundation became the official private fund-raising arm of the college.
