Helping Veterans

GIVE LOCAL VETERANS WHO HAVE SERVED OUR COUNTRY THE CHANCE FOR 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 $1000.00

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.
