Honickman Charitable Trust
Community College of Philadelphia
The Honickman Charitable Trust is proud to support the Community College of Philadelphia (CCP), the largest public institution of higher education in the City and the only public institution of higher learning in the City that strives to meet the growing demand for high quality, affordable and accessible education. CCP "draws together students from a wide range of ages, and backgrounds, and seeks to provide the programs and support they need to achieve their goals."
President Obama has identified community colleges as key players in boosting America's economy. At CCP, students can select from over 70 degree and certificate programs in art, science, business, technology and liberal arts that will educate, prepare and train them for careers that are both rewarding and in demand in our region.
CCP is also one of the great connectors in the Philadelphia region. Over 90 percent of their graduates remain in the area and seek employment, strengthening our local economy and workforce. Local businesses look to CCP to provide workforce training to keep their workers skilled and their companies competitive.
The Honickman Charitable Trust believes that an investment in the Community College of Philadelphia is an investment in the future of our region and a path to endless possibilities.
