Through our Every Bright Future Needs a Strong Foundation initiative, the MCC Foundation works to ensure deserving students receive the scholarship support they need to be successful and complete their plan of study at MCC. Because 90 percent of MCC career program graduates who are employed full-time remain in greater Rochester, this initiative also ensures that MCC remains a force behind our region's economic stability and workforce development.

To continue to increase the amount of support available to MCC students, the MCC Foundation works with donors to expand the number of scholarships available; 11 new scholarship funds were established last year. The Foundation also works with donors to increase the amount of funds available in existing scholarships. The goal of the Every Bright Future initiative is to grow the organization's endowment to $50 million to support students' scholarship needs in perpetuity.

The MCC Foundation has a dynamic board comprised of 53 of greater Rochester's business and community leaders. Led by Executive Director Diane Shoger and supported by the Foundation staff, the MCC Foundation has a comprehensive fundraising program that incorporates annual giving, planned giving, major gifts and special events. The Foundation's strategic plan guides the fundraising plan annually.

The MCC Foundation's strategic plan includes benchmarks that progress is measured against consistently. The Foundation keeps a dashboard of the fundraising initiatives that help to inform the staff and volunteers on progress toward annual goals.

The MCC Foundation helped the college launch Scholarships Online this year, making all MCC scholarships available via an online portal that every student can access to apply. The number of students who are awarded scholarships continues to grow however, the number of applicants still far outnumber the scholarships available. The MCC Foundation continues to work to meet that need.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
