MCC Foundation 1-24-21

Gretchen Wood, MCC Foundation Executive Director and VP of Institutional Advancement joins Marti Casper and talks about how funds were and continue to be used to support students not only during the pandemic but as it has for the past 60 years. There are so many scholarships available and Gretchen urges anyone who wants to start a college career to go to the MCC website and apply. Last year MCC Foundation was able to provide nearly 60 students with laptops so they could continue studies virtually. Funds from a scholarship supported the nursing department with PPE equipment, pay for exam fees and more. The Dreamkeepers Emergency Fund which last year was at 52.5 million dollars, helped send students of all ages who needed financial help, to MCC for studies. There are 3 key fundraising events each year: summer golf tournament, Gold Star Gala and a fall 5K around the campus on East Henrietta Road. website is monroecc.org
