MCC Employee Giving Campaign
Together, We're Making a Difference
Our goal is to have 50% of MCC employees participating in the Employee Giving Program. Will you join us? Our collective effort in increasing the employee participation will demonstrate to our students and other donors that we believe in and support the mission and future of MCC.
So far in FY2016, MCC employees donated and pledged over $27,000 in scholarship funds through our employee giving campaign, “Together, We Make a Difference” but only 24% of MCC Employees contributed to the campaign! Are you willing to help us increase that percentage? Every little bit of support will help us reach our fundraising goals to help more students afford a college education!
