Board of Directors

The Hennepin Technical College Foundation Board is comprised of local business leaders and community representatives and was established in 1998 to provide funding for student and college needs not otherwise covered by tuition and tax revenues.

The board is charged with expanding relationships and securing funds to help financially challenged students complete their technical education and to help the college fulfill its mission.
