HCC Foundation's 'Double Play' challenge continues to grow

FREEPORT—Due to the generosity of two additional contributors who have pledged to match gifts through 2013, the matching pool has been increased to $75,000 from $50,000 for the Highland Community College Foundation’s “Double Play” challenge. Two donors had already pledged to match gifts to the current major gift campaign or to “the greatest needs of the college” through 2017.

James M. Berberet, HCC Foundation Executive Director, announced that Ultrasonic Power Corporation, Freeport, is upping the total matching pool with $10,000, and Emeritus Foundation Board Member Matt Marvin, Freeport, is adding $5,000.

Donations to the major gift campaign, which have recently surpassed $2.5 million, along with revenue from debt certificates issued by the College, have allowed both the Ray and Betty Stamm Health Science Nursing Wing and the Wind Turbine Technician Training Center to be utilized by students and faculty. However, more than $3.5 million remains to be raised so that the Foundation can fulfill its pledge to retire the debt, according to Berberet.

Donors who wish to participate can designate their gift to the “greatest needs of Highland Community College” or to the current major gift campaign – “Growing for tomorrow–changing lives today.” Please contact the Foundation office at 815.599.3413 to request additional information and to secure a donation form.

Highland Community College and the Foundation thank donors for their consideration and for helping to build a better future for higher education in northwest Illinois.
