Help us “Keep Our Students Learning”!



The Hartnell College Foundation continues to look to keep our students learning by supporting scholarships that will allow them to address their basic needs so that they can continue to move from struggling to striving and thriving.

Consider making a gift to our Basic Needs scholarship fund. Your gift will go toward $500 Emergency Scholarships to help cover students’ basic needs like housing, food, medical bills, etc..

With 85% of our students coming from low-income families, this extra help will make a huge difference. Give today by clicking the button below to keep our students learning!


I applied for and received help from the emergency fund, and I just can’t tell you how much it really helped. I can’t thank you enough for what you’ve done for me and the rest of the students. Honestly, there were just times where making ends meet was tough, so the donations are allowing me to continue on this pathway that I want to be on.
