Mount Wachusett Community College Foundation, Inc.
Mount Wachusett Community College Foundation, Inc., a private, independent, non-profit organization, established in 1971, serves as an avenue for the community to assist with the financial support of MWCC.
The objectives of the foundation are to engage in fundraising activities which will generate funds from the private sector to increase the Foundation’s endowment. Income from the endowment is used to further the educational, social, recreational, and cultural mission of the college and to benefit the students and communities we serve.

A Board of Directors, composed of business and community leaders, formulates the policies, goals and direction of the Foundation. The funds received by the Foundation come from alumni, individuals, corporations, private businesses, foundations, and fund raising events.
The Foundation seeks to promote Mount Wachusett Community College as a resource to the communities of North Central Massachusetts and to acquire and administer the contributions necessary to ensure the long-term growth of the College.
