Who We Are

MC Foundation Memebers

Many members of our community recognize that education is the key to transforming their lives. You can provide the gift of education and positively impact the life of a Montgomery College student, while helping to ensure that Montgomery County remains a wonderful place to live for all our residents. Seventy one percent of our graduates remain in Montgomery County, joining our workforce and contributing to our local economy. Please consider making a gift to the Montgomery College Foundation.

The Montgomery College Foundation, whose Tax ID number is 52-126-7008, is an 501(c)(301) Institutionally Related Foundation IRF governed by a board of directors, who 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.
