2020-2021 Revenue by Funding Source
tuition and fees
The impact of HFC on the local business community during the 2017 fiscal year amounted to $883 million, equal to the sum of the operations spending impact, the student spending impact, and the alumni impact. This added income was equal to approximately 0.4% of the region’s Gross Regional Product (GRP).
Total benefits to taxpayers are $365 million, equal to the sum of the added taxes and public sector savings. Comparing this to the taxpayer costs of $41 million— equal to the funding that HFC received from state and local government during the year—yields a benefit-cost ratio of 8.9. This means that for every $1 of public money invested in HFC, taxpayers receive a cumulative value of $8.90 over the course of the students’ working lives. The average annual rate of return is 26.2%, an investment that compares favorably with other long-term investments in both the private and public sectors.
In return for their investment, HFC’s students will receive a stream of higher future wages that will continue to grow throughout their working lives. The average associate degree graduate from HFC will see an increase in earnings of $11,700 each year compared to someone with a high school diploma or equivalent. Over the course of an HFC graduate’s working lifetime, this increase in earnings amounts to a value of approximately $468,000 in higher income.
