Allan Hancock College Foundation

The Allan Hancock College Foundation (AHC Foundation), an IRS 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, has been providing philanthropic support to the college for more than 40 years. 

Created in 1977 by a group of community and business leaders, the foundation provides, on average, more than $1 million annually to support student scholarships, academic and vocational programs, and campus clubs. 

In 2017 alone, more than $505,000 in scholarship funds were awarded to 394 students. Donations to the AHC Foundation are tax deductible. Federal Tax ID #95-3143396. 

The Hancock Promise Fund is a new initiative to provide high school graduates within the service district of Allan Hancock College (AHC) the opportunity to get their first year free at the college. The AHC Foundation, with the philanthropic support of our community and Promise partners, launched a $10 million Hancock Promise campaign in the fall of 2017 creating an endowment, in perpetuity, that will ensure the first year is free at AHC. With the Extended Promise, assistance continues in year two – either to graduate or transfer to a four-year university – so that students truly continue to start here, and go anywhere.
