Giving Opportunities

Higher education provides opportunities for learning and innovation, which benefits both Hennepin Technical College (Hennepin Tech) students and society. In an age of declining public support and rising costs, private philanthropy is essential to ensure that Hennepin Tech continues to provide an affordable and quality education to those for whom the College is their only chance – and our community’s best hope – to build prosperity.

There are many ways to support Hennepin Tech. Whether your gift qualifies as an annual, endowed or planned gift, Hennepin Tech staff will work with you to ensure that your gift meets your own goals and financial needs while benefiting students and programs at the College. The Hennepin Technical College Foundation is the College’s tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) direct support organization which serves as the recipient and trustee of all charitable donations to the College.

If you need assistance with how to make your gift, please contact the Advancement staff at (763) 488-2836, or via email at

Donations can be mailed to: HTC Foundation, 9000 Brooklyn Boulevard, Brooklyn Park, MN 55445
Checks may be made out to: Hennepin Technical College Foundation (or HTC Foundation)

Endowed Gifts

An endowed gift is an investment in the future success of Hennepin Technical College. An endowed gift is a gift that the college holds in perpetuity. The gift is invested and the earnings are used to fulfill the purpose(s) for which the fund was created. A minimum amount of $25,000 is required to establish an endowment. Fund may be created for scholarships, equipment, or other educational purposes.



In order for HTC students to be successful in a new career, they must be prepared and ready to hit the road with hands-on experience with relevant equipment, tools and labs. Launching the start of a successful career is done with much help from organizations and businesses that are willing to help prepare their new hires.
