Montgomery College Foundation

Empowering Students, Building Community

A Montgomery College nursing scholar is a catalytic force to MC's mission of carrying out the public good.

As of December 2020, the Montgomery College Foundation has provided over 2,020 students with emergency assistance due to the global pandemic, awarding over $1.01M in support. We continue to receive many student requests for food and technology for remote learning. Together, we continue to be there for our students.
