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 45 years. 

Created in 1977 by a group of community and business leaders, the foundation provides more than $1 million annually to support student scholarships, academic and vocational programs, and campus clubs. In 2023 alone, the foundation awarded more than $500,000 in scholarship funds to more than 300 students. The foundation also supports the Hancock Promise. After successfully completing a $10 million endowment campaign in 2024, the foundation ensures that every high school graduate can attend Hancock tuition-free for two years.
