MCC Foundation

The Metropolitan Community College community has been committed to student success since 1915, when the institution that would become MCC was founded. In 1976, the MCC Foundation was formed to advance the mission of the College by increasing student access to educational opportunities and supporting quality programs.

More than 50% of MCC students require financial aid to realize their dreams of attending college. Because of your support, their dreams are made into a reality at Metropolitan Community College.

MCC Foundation credentials

The MCC Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that was established on April 1, 1976, by Metropolitan Community College. We are designated to receive and manage gifts on behalf of MCC’s five campuses. The Foundation actively seeks contributions from a variety of public and private sources including individuals, corporations, organizations and other foundations.

MCC Foundation scholarship and program funds benefit students and campuses throughout the MCC district. MCC Foundation funds are kept and managed separately from the College. The Foundation acts as a trustee for donations to assure that gifts are distributed in the manner specified by the donor. The MCC Foundation is audited annually by an independent public accounting firm.
