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 help our students take that all-important first step: enrolling at MCC with your generosity and support.

"Why do I support the MCC Foundation? Because the MCC Foundation directly supports MCC students committed to creating impactful lives for themselves. The Foundation enables deserving MCC men and women across all walks of life to fulfill their destinies as educated and empowered citizens in their communities long after graduation." - Honorable Matthew J. O'Connor, P.E.
