Year-end office hours

We are ready to help you complete your year-end charitable giving, with our staff available to provide answers and process transactions.

Our campus will be closed from Tuesday, December 24 to Wednesday January 1, 2020.

We will be open for business on Thursday, January 2 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Student Scholarships

Motivated students will go to great lengths to secure a top-notch education. For every inventive risk-taker, every hard-driving self-starter on our campus, there’s a story of sacrifice. In small doses, sacrifice has value. But we need to keep financial burdens low if we mean to prepare students for unfettered futures and meet the scholarship giving opportunities needed most.

With increased scholarship funding, we can help students focus on what they’ll get out of MCC—and what they’ll eventually give back.

Greatest Need Fund

Like any great institution, MCC must be able to respond to urgent and unexpected needs and opportunities. Gifts designated for the Greatest Need fund provide College leadership with critical financial flexibility for each academic year. Sometimes the most critical needs are the most basic. Examples include books and supplies for coursework, computers, student services, as well as academic and co-curricular programming and activities. MCC depends on annual gifts from alumni and friends like you to sustain its position of academic excellence.
