Private and corporate donors, volunteers, friends, Foundation Directors and MCC Foundation staff generate inspiring results for MCC students each year. As individuals and as representatives of organizations, we make a commitment to MCC and are rewarded each time we witness the transformative impact public higher education has on students, families and employers. Lives are changed through our efforts and the scholarships and innovative programs we make possible each year.
This is why we’re here.
