Whether you chose to make an unrestricted gift or restrict your gift to a specific scholarship fund, support from faculty and staff is vital to the health and continued growth of MCC.
Your gifts to the Annual Fund for Monroe Community College not only make the first step possible for MCC students by helping them to overcome financial challenges that may seem like insurmountable barriers to a college education, they allow us to help build a more promising future for our students and our community by making the possibility of a college education a reality.
Thank you for helping us exceed our 2016-2017 goal by 3.6 percent, raising $710,394. You are making a world of difference with your generosity and dedication.

"I support the Annual Fund because I was fortunate to get a college education and a good job, and now I wish to help others enjoy the same opportunities."
"I support the Annual Fund because my gift, combined with the gifts of others in the college community, helps provide an education for those students who would probably not have received one without it. I have watched these students graduate and go on to make a positive impact in our community. Seeing students walk across that stage and receive their diploma makes my heart proud!"
"The reason I support the annual fund is best said by EE Cummings, “Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit.” And for me learning is the transportation for our curiosity and wonder…and anything I can do to help others achieve this experience makes my heart and soul soar."
"Helping one person is helping a community. Watching a change for the better will give you peace within."
Students' lives are changed.
Gifts to the Annual Fund enable talented students to earn a transformative MCC education by providing scholarship and other support for their remarkable MCC experience. Meet current student Ebony Testman and former student Adrian Hale who benefitted from Annual Fund support.
"Thank you so much. Life as a student and parent is very challenging and receiving a scholarship will bring me one step closer to earning a degree in Human Services and achieving my goal of opening my own non-profit organization to provide help to those in need in the Rochester community."
"The scholarship I received while attending Monroe Community College enabled me to open doors in my life that I never thought I’d be able to walk through, including being accepted to Yale University! My success at MCC will continue to follow me no matter what I choose to do."
MCC retirees help our community grow.
Retirees continue to contribute to the momentum started when they worked at the college by helping to keep higher education at MCC accessible, affordable and inspiring every day!
"Our desire is that, through a strong Annual Fund, the college will be able to assist any and all students with needs as they strive to complete their academic goals."
