HACC Foundation to Participate in Lancaster’s Extraordinary Give Campaign

LANCASTER, Pa. – The HACC Foundation is participating in Lancaster County’s 2015 Extraordinary Give, a 24-hour giving marathon, on Nov. 20, 2015.
Gifts donated to the HACC Foundation during the Extraordinary Give will benefit HACC’s Lancaster Campus Emergency Assistance Fund. Through this fund, current students facing a financial emergency or an unexpected financial burden (excluding tuition-related expenses) may apply to receive extraordinary financial help to continue their education at HACC.
While primarily aimed at helping students continue their studies, these funds have occasionally been life-saving and have assisted a student escape domestic abuse, helped a student whose house was destroyed by fire and provided temporary shelter to a homeless student.
The funds can go a long way for students in need:
  • A gift of $250 can cover textbooks or supplies for one course; pay the fees for one or two courses (depending on field of study); purchase scrubs and shoes for nursing clinical; or purchase bus passes for an entire term.
  • A gift of $500 can pay for two weeks of emergency childcare; cover the costs of textbooks or supplies for two courses; pay for automotive repairs for a student facing a transportation challenge; or replace a student's program-required uniforms, shoes and supplies destroyed in a fire or flood.
  • A gift of $1,000 can change the lives of two students and pay for two weeks of emergency childcare; cover the cost of textbooks or supplies for two courses; cover fees for up to four courses (depending on field of study); pay for automotive repairs for a transportation challenge; or replace program-required uniforms, shoes and supplies destroyed in a fire or flood.
 To donate to the HACC Foundation during the Extraordinary Give, please visit from 12:01 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. on Nov. 20 and choose the “HACC Foundation.”
Lancaster County’s 2014 Extraordinary Give raised more than $4.2 million. Funds raised this year will have the opportunity to be increased by support from the Lancaster County Community Foundation, Rodgers & Associates and other corporate sponsors.
