Impact of HCA Alliance Donations
Youth Education and Outreach $500
Each year HCA receives requests for financial assistance from individuals and organizations to participate in HCA programs. The requests often come from underserved populations (youth, seniors) or schools. This fund provides assistance for scholarships and tours that are typically awarded for up to 50% of the cost of the class, camp, tour or program. The funds also are granted for up to 50% of the cost for Title 1 schools to engage in HCA tours and performances. We are increasing our promotion of summer camp scholarships in 2016 and expect to see an increase in scholarship requests.
Jefferson County Teachers Exhibit Awards $1,000
The Annual Jefferson County Teachers Exhibit is held in the Lakewood Civic Center Richey Gallery. The exhibit features work by teachers currently teaching in Jefferson County. Awards are presented for several categories including Best of Show and are presented by the HCA Alliance to winning artists at the opening reception. In addition to showcasing the talent of our local educators, this exhibit helps HCA strengthen relationships with Jefferson County schools.
Maxine Barnes Volunteer of the Year Award $250
The Maxine Barnes award is named after one of the first HCA volunteers and who set a high standard for volunteerism through her exceptional service. The volunteer of the year award was named after Maxine to inspire volunteers to serve with dedication, flexibility and passion as she did.
The Alliance funded the physical award and gift certificate given to the 2016 Volunteer of the Year, Lee Wellbrock . In addition, a $100 donation was made in the honoree’s name to the HCA program of their choice.
