Mission, Vision, & Governance

Mission Statement

The Pennsylvania Highlands Community College Foundation seeks and secures financial support for the College and its students by raising friends and funds and successfully managing resources and relationships.


The Pennsylvania Highlands Community College Foundation will serve as a premier community college foundation by meeting and exceeding the College and our communities’ educational needs.


Established in 1995, the Pennsylvania Highlands Community College Foundation is a non-profit educational trust under Section 501 (c) (3). The Foundation was created to provide resources for the growth and development of the College.

The Foundation actively solicits funds to support student scholarships and programs, faculty and staff development, the alumni association, and facility needs. The Foundation raises funds through donations, benefit events, grants, and deferred gifts. The Foundation also serves as an important role in establishing relationships between the College and area business and industry as well as the community at large.


A volunteer Board of Directors from throughout our region governs the Foundation. Members are leaders in business, industry, education, health care, community services, and the arts. The Board’s main priority is to raise funds on behalf of the College.
