Mott Community College has been an anchor institution in Flint and Genesee County for almost 100 years, providing educational opportunities to generations of area residents.

I am honored to serve as Chair of The Foundation for Mott Community College Board of Directors, and to help lead it forward as we work to support students and the college at large.

The Foundation for Mott Community College, a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization, was created in 1986 to venture beyond what public funding could do, offering resources for broader opportunities at MCC. The Foundation exists as a fourth funding stream to provide financial assistance beyond the traditional income garnered from tuition, property taxes and state aid.

In addition to providing scholarships and grants to deserving students, The Foundation supports a broad range of special projects involving education, training and economic development in the community. The Foundation also awards grants to promote professional development for faculty and staff as well as funding for the Employee and Student Emergency funds, a new fund that provides resources to MCC staff and students experiencing crises or unforeseen circumstances that can wreak havoc in people’s lives.

Investment of charitable and planned gifts with The Foundation for Mott Community College are not merely investments in the College, they literally change lives. When you invest in MCC you directly impact families and ensure the future prosperity of the entire community.

I invite you to join me in Changing Lives for a Changing World by supporting our students and MCC. If you are already a donor, I want to thank you for your ongoing commitment to the college and the community it serves. Your gifts enable MCC to build a better world for all of us, one student at a time.

With gratitude.
