Who We Are

The Montgomery College Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization governed by business, alumni, and community leaders to support the mission and vision of Montgomery College. Through advocacy, influence, and financial support, these volunteer leaders work to ensure understanding of and commitment to the community college philosophy of opportunity, inclusion, and educational achievement for all.

Private donations from local businesses, foundations, community leaders, alumni, and college faculty and staff are instrumental in providing scholarships and programs that make Montgomery College relevant to the students and communities it serves. Donations for academic and other special programs enhance areas such as the arts, humanities, business, athletics, biotechnology, engineering, workforce development, and health sciences.
