The Middlesex Community College Foundation’s purposes are to support the College and its students by receiving, managing, and distributing funds for scholarships and other educational purposes; and, to generate and strengthen communication and collaboration among the College, the Foundation, and business, industry, professional, civic, and educational leaders in the communities served by the College – all of Middlesex County, Meriden and Wallingford in New Haven County, and Rocky Hill in Hartford County. The Foundation’s Board of Directors includes community and business leaders, alumni, faculty and student representatives, and administrators at MxCC.
The Foundation strongly supports the college’s mission, especially through fundraising efforts that enhance student scholarhips, academic programs, and campus projects. Each year the Foundation awards approximately 50 scholarships in the range of $500 to $2,000 each. The Foundation and scholarship recipients thank individual donors, civic groups, businesses, charitable foundations, alumni, and college faculty and staff who provide the support that makes this possible. Donors establish scholarships to honor the memory and achievements of family, faculty or friends, to express their personal appreciation for their educational experiences at MxCC, or because they truly believe that community colleges are a purely American institution designed to make higher education accessible and affordable to all. Each year, the MxCC Foundation organizes The MxCC Classic golf tournament, the $cholarship 5K, and the MxCC Bowlathon to raise funds that support student scholarships and college programs.
