Hartnell College Foundation

Mission

The mission of Hartnell College Foundation is to cultivate resources to champion student success.

The Big Idea

The Hartnell College Foundation supports the success of Hartnell College students, 85 percent of whom come from low-income families and need help with food, housing, transportation and medical costs. This nonprofit’s Big Idea will continue to help students meet these basic needs, so they can focus on academics and achieve their full potential. The nonprofit’s Big Idea, the Keep Our Students Learning project, will establish $500 scholarships to continue helping students cope with economic stress and advance their education.

“I applied for and received help from the emergency fund, and I just can’t tell you how much it really helped. I can’t thank you enough for what you’ve done for me and the rest of the students. Honestly, there were just times where making ends meet was tough, so the donations are allowing me to continue on this pathway that I want to be on.”

- Hugo Guttierez

We’re In This Together

Nonprofits are more important that ever in this trying time. Monterey County Gives! was created to support the local nonprofit community's Big Ideas (and programs). And thanks to your participation and generosity, Monterey County Gives! raised over $7.8 million for 162 local nonprofits in 2020.

MCGives! has now raised and contributed over $35 million dollars since its inception ten years ago. That’s astounding. And wonderful. Thank you to all our Partners, Sponsors, nonprofit Board Directors, staff and volunteers — and each of our 7,578 donors. We did it, together.

The 2021 Campaign begins November 11.
