Metropolitan Community College Foundation

Fall 2008 | Archives

MCCF Since 1977 the Metropolitan Community College Foundation has helped students, faculty and staff achieve their goals through educational programs, scholarships and facilities support. By connecting MCC with community supporters, the Foundation advances the College´s mission and values and helps build the community it serves.

Over the past year, MCC received the largest gift in the Foundation´s history to help construct the new Institute for the Culinary Arts and Alumni Conference Center. The entire Metropolitan Community College family of students, faculty and staff is grateful for the leadership shown by the Pegler Family Foundation in helping to kick-off the major gifts campaign for the Institute for the Culinary Arts & Alumni Conference Center.

"This is the right opportunity for us to contribute in a significant way to support both education and the foodservice industry as our family has been involved in both throughout the history of our company," said Don Pegler, III, spokesperson for the Pegler Family Foundation.

The generosity of the Pegler family and other community supporters helps ensure that MCC students will receive an exceptional educational experience in the new 38,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility, that will also serve as an anchor in redeveloping North Omaha. MCC is currently the only two-year institution that offers a degree in Culinology and is one of the leading and most affordable culinary programs in the United States.

The MCC Foundation has also recently embarked on a new initiative that highlights other special opportunities to help move the College into the future while meeting the needs of the community. The newly released giving opportunities guide provides supporters a new mechanism to evaluate and align their giving interests to the numerous special projects underway at Metropolitan Community College.

"By showcasing the College´s strategic priorities, initiatives and needs, the MCC Foundation hopes to foster a new collaborative culture with the College and our four-county service area," said Patricia Crisler, MCC associate vice president of development and executive director of the MCC Foundation.

"This compilation of giving opportunities clearly demonstrates that when you give to the MCC Foundation, you are supporting Metropolitan Community College´s students, faculty, staff and programs."
