Your Support Makes a Difference

When you support Mount Wachusett Community College, you are making a difference not only in the life of a student but in the community as a whole.  Our graduates are your co-workers, your employees, your nurses and dental hygienists, your mechanics, veterinary technicians, teachers, firefighters, and police officers. MWCC and our graduates are vital to the success of our region, and financial aid and state funding is not enough.  Every gift, even a small amount, can have a life-changing impact on a student and the future of MWCC.

State funding only comprises approximately 50% of the College’s operating budget, as such we rely on the support of our alumni and friends to meet the needs of the community. Donations to the MWCC Foundation help us to:

  • Upgrade campus learning environments to meet modern technologies and requirements.
  • Grant scholarships to help students pay for courses, books, and other items needed for their degree programs, such as laptops and software or tools and tool chests for automotive students.
  • Support student basic needs and the Emergency Student Loan fund.

“Why did we choose to give to the students at MWCC? That is pretty easy. With the cost of higher education becoming out of the reach of many talented students, we are fortunate to have an excellent community college within easy reach.” – Anonymous donor

Your Generosity

Thanks to the generosity of supporters like you, the Foundation distributes more than $450,000 in scholarships annually. Without these crucial gifts, many – if not most – disadvantaged students would not be able to attend MWCC.

We rely on charitable support to provide students with the educational opportunities that help them launch their lives. With your help, we can continue to do this great work!

A Very Fulfilling Feeling

"This scholarship reminds me that MWCC is a place that I can always return to. It’s a place I hope to return to – to reinvest in the place that invested in me. Thank you so much for seeing the potential in me."
