About The Foundation
Established in 1967 as a not-for-profit corporation, the Herkimer County College Foundation, Inc. helps the College secure resources that allow us to continually enhance the quality of our offerings and provide life-changing opportunities for students. By supporting the Herkimer County College Foundation, our donors enable us to award more scholarships, address the College’s most important priorities, and transform the futures of individual students and the College as a whole.
The Herkimer County College Foundation has developed and supports over 80 scholarships and scholarship programs that award more than $130,000 annually to eligible students. Grants are also awarded each year to faculty and staff for ongoing professional development and independent research.
Providing steadfast assistance to Herkimer College in initiatives to obtain private funds, the Herkimer County College Foundation has been instrumental in the acquisition of land for future campus expansion and the development of student housing adjacent to the campus. The Herkimer County College Foundation supports capital projects, invests in College programs, instructional technology, and holds multiple recognition and fundraising events.
Guided by a Board of Directors comprised of community, campus and business leaders, the Herkimer County College Foundation and its donors play a vital role in the enhancement of campus life, as well as assuring that the College continues its demonstrated commitment to higher education.
Alumni, students, parents, faculty, staff, and community members can support the College by attending one of our Herkimer County College Foundation events. View our Event Gallery to see photos from past events.
There are many ways to give to the Herkimer County College Foundation and Herkimer College. We urge you to explore these opportunities to impact our institution and directly improve the lives of deserving students in need.
