About the MCC Foundation

Welcome to the MCC Foundation

At the Metropolitan Community College Foundation, we believe that education has the power to change lives. Our work connects people to that power.

Our work

We connect people to causes that benefit the entire MCC community. If you care deeply about a cause or community need, chances are, Metropolitan Community College is doing something about it. From our core mission of education to workforce or environmental issues to arts and culture, MCC is helping make our communities better.

We connect MCC students with scholarships provided by generous community donors.

Moving college from dream to reality that’s the power of scholarships to our students.

Our mission

The MCC Foundation advances the College's mission by creating community awareness, building and nurturing meaningful relationships and connecting community partners with giving opportunities that fulfill their philanthropic objectives.

Our charter

The MCC Foundation was established in 1977 as a separate, not-for-profit, IRS approved 501(c)3 corporation with the purpose of advancing the work of MCC.
