FHPW made an initial donation of $10,000 to begin an endowment fund for a Houston Community College Scholarship through the HCC Foundation. We need to finish funding the endowment and need your help to reach the goal of an additional $15,000 to complete it, then it will forever provide a scholarship to a woman at HCC on behalf of the Federation.  Go here to make a donation, which is tax deductible, and can be made from a business or individual.  Under 'Donation, click 'other' and type in the amount. Under 'designation, click other and type FHPW Endowment Fund, then type in payment details, donor info and submit.  Thank you!
