Give Local Veterans Who Have Served Our Country a New Start

We Invite You and Your Business To Become a “Hometown Hero”

 

HELP A DESERVING VETERAN START THEIR OWN BUSINESS
WITH A ONETIME TAX DEDUCTIBLE GIFT OF $500.00

The “Hometown Heroes” scholarship program is a collaboration between
Hillsborough Community College and local nonprofit Fulfill Your Destiny.

Each year military veterans who have sustained life-changing setbacks, return home to Tampa.
They dream of starting a new chapter in their lives. Many have the dream of starting their own business.

Veterans who qualify for “Operation Startup” a new veteran scholarship program presented in partnership between
HCC and nonprofit Fulfill Your Destiny, receive the education they need to operate their own business and contribute to our local economy.

When you sponsor a veteran to attend “Operation Startup,” you give him or her the chance to fulfill their dream of independence.
The need to expand “Operation Startup” is great as many deserving veterans remain on a waiting list.

Rosie Lee, Program Manager, HCC’s Veterans Florida Entrepreneurship Program:

“Most of our veterans have no idea that local business people are advocating for them.  Receiving these starter grants places a warm hand on their shoulder, one that symbolizes the support and encouragement from caring local business people. Thank you!”
