We make it easy to give.

At Hocking College, we help put our students on a pathway to prosperity. We do this through the purposeful generosity of others. 

Donors choose exactly where they want their contributions to go. Gifts can enhance buildings, support programs or fund new projects. Where donations normally have the biggest impact, however, is on the lives of students and their families.

Each and every gift to Hocking College has an impact, no matter the size. In 2023, more than $400,000 in donor-funded scholarships were awarded to our students. For some of our students, even a small contribution could be the difference in them being able to finish their degree.

Careful planning can make charitable giving a personally satisfying and financially sound decision. Please explore the content below to learn more about ways you can help support Hocking College and its students.
