Ways to Give

Every Bright Future Needs a Strong Foundation

The MCC Foundation’s Every Bright Future Needs a Strong Foundation campaign provides hope and opportunity to students who feel a college education is beyond their reach. Community philanthropists and leaders have given us a great start on achieving our $50 million goal. Please consider joining us and making your own personal impact on this important campaign. Future MCC students and our community will thank you for it. 

The Annual Fund

The Annual Fund is a vital source of unrestricted funds that support student scholarships, faculty enrichment programs, funding for educational equipment and seed money for innovative programs. 

Tribute Gifts

Tribute Gifts demonstrate how much that special person meant to you and believed in public education by giving a gift in their honor or memory.

Annual Events

Annual Events - Celebrate MCC students and generosity by sponsoring one of our annual events.

Establish a Scholarship

Annual Scholarship

With a minimum contribution of $10,000, an annual scholarship can be established. Pledge commitments may be paid over as many as five years.


With a minimum contribution of $25,000, an endowed scholarship can be established. Endowments are donated funds that are invested in perpetuity. If you are eager to have your gift impact lives now and in the future, establishing an endowment is a wise choice.

Create a Legacy

Incorporate philanthropy into your personal estate plan. Gift planning offers a variety of ways to structure contributions to provide maximum benefits to the donor, their families, and the College. Bequests, charitable trusts and various life-income gifts are part of our legacy offerings.
