Donors who give to the MCC Foundation impact the lives of students like Camille Ball of Penfield (photo left). When Camille applied to Monroe Community College last spring, she and her mother were not sure how their family would pay the college bills. As MCC's first Max and Marian Farash Charitable Foundation First in Family Scholarship recipient, Ball can now graduate debt free from college and pursue her dream of becoming a nurse.
Whether it is an MCC student you want to inspire, a loved one you wish to honor, or an academic or co-curricular program you would like to support because it benefited you, the MCC Foundation is here to help make your giving experience as easy as possible, enjoyable and rewarding.
