As Chair of The Foundation for Mott Community College, I am proud of the effort we have launched with The Leadership Group to create a solid organizational and resource development plan for the Foundation for Mott Community College. The findings will have a direct impact on the future business and undertakings of the Foundation and the College.

The Foundation, a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization established in 1986, is governed by a board of community volunteers. It exists as a fourth funding stream to provide financial assistance beyond the traditional income garnered from tuition, property tax and state revenue. It plays a critical role in actively assisting both Mott Community College and more than 10,000 students on the MCC campuses.

We believe our new plan with the Leadership Group will further establish our charitable organization as a reliable and solid support system for students, the college and the greater Flint community. We are striving to daily enhance the quality of education and the educational opportunities in this region.

Currently, the Foundation supports more than 100 scholarships; nearly 50 endowment funds and a number of special projects designed to strengthen economic development, enhance education and training, create new career programs, and support professional development for faculty and staff as well as educational, literary and scientific activities at MCC.

All that we do on behalf of students could never be done without the commitment and generous support of this outstanding community. Your generosity enables the Foundation to have greater impact on our region.

 

Do you have friends, family members or co-workers who once attended this college? Though there have been many name changes - Flint Junior College, Flint Community College, Genesee Community College - the mark of excellence has endured throughout the years. As long as a person has taken one or more class during their lifetime, they are considered an alum. I invite you to help us update our database by sending updated names, addresses, city/state/zip code and/or phone number and email address to:

The Foundation for MCC
1401 E. Court St., Flint, MI 48503.

The information will be kept strictly confidential.

On behalf of the Foundation of Mott Community College, thank you for your commitment to our students and to the community. Your support is making the academic dreams come true for thousands of students who otherwise might not have the opportunity to make those dreams a reality.

Sincerely,
Joe Black, Chair
Foundation for Mott Community College
