The Harper College Promise

Harper College offered its first classes nearly 50 years ago to fulfill a promise – a promise to increase access to quality, affordable education that improves lives and helps build a vibrant community for residents and businesses of Chicago’s northwest suburbs.

The generosity of participation of the College’s alumni, donors and partners have helped Harper keep this promise in increasingly innovative and enriching ways.

As the world continues to become more complex and the need for an educated community and prepared workforce becomes more vital, we find ourselves more committed than ever to our promise.

The Harper College Educational Foundation’s Campaign for Promise is a launching pad to a better future for students, families and businesses across Harper’s community. There are many ways to help - join us as we elevate our promise to our students and our community.


The Harper College Educational Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization designated to provide funding and resources for the College not available through normal government and tax sources. The Foundation actively seeks contributions from a variety of public and private resources including individuals, corporations and other foundations. It acts as a trustee for donations to assure that gifts are distributed in the manner specified by the donor.
