Hinds Community College
Foundation & Alumni Association
The Foundation seeks to enhance the educational mission of Hinds Community College by providing a means for private sector support and by increasing community awareness of the services the college offers. The Foundation provides scholarships for deserving students, offers programs to recognize the employees of the college, and administers funds for student organizations and other areas of the college.
The Foundation depends solely on the support of donors to achieve its goals. All gifts, regardless of size, are appreciated and needed and are tax-deductible according to IRS guidelines. Give the gift of education—an investment that continues paying dividends for generations.
The Alumni Association can be your connection to your college days at Hinds and a network for today and the future. It is the goal of the Alumni Association to strengthen the bond between Hinds Community College and our alumni and to provide opportunities for you to contribute your time, talent, and resources to the school that you love.
