HMCAC currently has 5 endowments honoring individuals who personified the Auburn Spirit and were committed to the HMCAC mission. In 2010 Dr. Charles Horton, a past HMCAC president, encouraged the board to begin building endowments in order to honor these much deserving individuals and ensure that their legacies continued by supporting future Auburn alumni.
The first endowment was established to honor Brooks and Marian Moore. The HMCAC, together with the friends and family, were able to contribute $25,000.
The following year, HMCAC named two additional endowments to honor James T. Tatum Jr. and Laura E. Hanks, whose families had long been active in HMCAC and who were paradigms of the Auburn Spirit.
In 2014, after a great year of fund raising, we were able to establish a general endowment that we can add to each year.
This year, with the help of an anonymous donor, we were able to establish a $25,000 endowment in the name of current VP, & long time board member, Larissa Chastain. Her hard work and dedication every year impacts the lives of countless students that are touched by our board.
