Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

  1. What is the organization aiming to accomplish?
    The Students

    Housatonic Community College (HCC) draws students with diverse cultural, educational and economic backgrounds. Most of the students require some form of financial assistance during their enrollment. Through the Foundation, deserving students receive scholarships and tuition assistance, and help in covering costs associated with tutoring services, financial emergencies, child care for enrolled parents, textbooks and other educational materials.

    The College

    The Foundation provides supplemental support to the College to meet financial needs not covered by state funding alone. These include professional development, technology and skills training, equipment and facility acquisitions, and enhancements to academic programs. This support is critical for HCC to remain a current and vital resource to its students and the Greater Bridgeport community.

    The Foundation also supports programs to address the serious problems faced by high school students who enter Housatonic Community College with academic deficiencies that severely limit and often prevent their academic achievement. These programs currently include Bridges and Middle College. Both work directly with high school students, counselors and instructors to help students become college-ready and better able to achieve success.This support is critical for HCC to remain a current and vital resource to its students and the Greater Bridgeport community.

    The Housatonic Museum of Art

    The Museum maintains an extensive art collection that offers students, faculty and art enthusiasts from the region the opportunity to view original works on display throughout the year, throughout the College. The Museum engages in educational outreach activities including a Student Docent Program for middle school and high school students, special exhibitions and lectures open to the public, and conservation efforts. The Foundation provides direct financial assistance to the Museum and collaborates with Museum staff on a wide range of fundraising programs and activities
  2. What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?
    Fundraising events, direct solicitation, building relationships with individuals, corporations and foundations who provide financial support.
  3. What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?
    A dedicated staff that treats each student's needs individually and works diligently to obtain donations.
  4. How will they know if they are making progress?
    Students completing their degree or certificate program.
  5. What have and haven't they accomplished so far?
    Individual support is strong. More corporations need to be engaged not only for funding, but to continue building a thriving community.
