MCC Foundation

Mission Statement

Manchester Community College Foundation advances the academic, economic, and personal growth of diverse populations by securing funding to assist the college in achieving its mission and goals through support of programs, scholarships and equipment.


MCC Foundation plays an instrumental role in ensuring the college’s doors are open to the community. Board members are ambassadors for the college and seek to share our understanding of the pivotal role MCC plays in our region. Because MCC is a vital community asset, we seek to attract resources for the college and its students in support of scholarships, programs and equipment.

I welcome you to learn more about MCC, what makes it unique and how you can be involved. There are so many ways MCC can benefit its students and the community and so many ways you can make a difference through the power of education.

MCC Foundation President

What We Do

Since 1968, MCC Foundation has supported the college’s strategic initiatives via funding for student scholarships, college programs and equipment. Financial needs cannot be met by state dollars alone; MCC needs private partners like you to ensure access, excellence and relevance to our community is sustained.

Through its fundraising and outreach, MCC Foundation is focused on building a network of community support and promoting increased public understanding of the college as a regional resource and economic contributor.

Call for Innovation Grant Proposals

MCC Foundation offers grants to the MCC community to stimulate innovation and fund projects that will enhance the student experience inside and outside the classroom and improve our community. For more information, go to Call for Proposals.
