About the Foundation

Established in 1979, the Foundation is a separate tax-exempt non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation. The 30-member board of directors oversees the Foundation. Board members serve three-year terms, with the College President serving as an ex officio member. The board selects the executive director. The Hinds CC Advancement Office serves as the College's link to the Foundation.

Your tax-deductible gift can help

Even though Hinds benefits from state appropriations, the College has become "state assisted" rather than "state funded," receiving less than 35% of its funding from the State of Mississippi this year. Your support of the Hinds CC Foundation helps ensure the success of deserving students by providing them with the funds needed to complete their education. Many students could not pursue their dreams of a better life without the help of people like you.

  • Provide scholarships for deserving students
  • Support faculty and staff development
  • Promote cultural enrichment activities for the community
  • Launch new programs or special projects
  • Help build an endowment for the future


The Foundation seeks to enhance the educational mission of Hinds Community College by providing a vehicle for private sector support and by increasing community awareness of the programs and services offered by the College.

The Foundation was able to award over 450 scholarships in 2017. A complete list of our 2017 recipients can be found here.

Your Gifts Change Lives

Because we are committed to seeing all of our students realize their educational and career goals, providing scholarships for students is the Foundation's top priority. While the Foundation stretches scholarship monies as far as possible, it is more important than ever to secure additional funds from private contributors.

Through a scholarship gift to the Hinds CC Foundation, contributors can actually monitor the progress of a student as he or she benefits from the donation, reaching goals that once seemed unattainable. Providing a Hinds scholarship for a deserving student is also an excellent way to honor or memorialize a loved one, and individual criteria can be matched to the donor’s desires.

Memorial Scholarships

Memorial scholarships are a great way of honoring an individual while also helping someone get an education. The Carla McCulloch Scholarship has been offered through the Hinds Community College Foundation for 26 years. It is like a family reunion each year when the family comes back to Mississippi to present the scholarship. The Hinds Community College Foundation is honored to have this scholarship, and to share with the McCulloch family the excitement of being involved in helping another person reach a goal.
