The Paxton Family Legacy Lives On

HARRISBURG, Pa. – The HACC Foundation recently funded projects with funds from a seven-figure estate gift from a Central Pennsylvania couple.
 
These innovative projects are made possible by the John E. Paxton and Gloria W. Paxton Fund for Excellence in STEAM. In April 2019, Mrs. Gloria W. Paxton left nearly $1.3 million to the HACC Foundation to establish the fund.
 
To date, $638,546.99 of the funds have been allocated for cutting-edge science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) programs to benefit students.
